My journey

My photographic journey, the (Divine?) Comedy such that it is, began in 1973.  Processing black and white film.  Unwinding a still-wet roll of film, marveling at the images.  It was alchemy of the highest order; magic to a 12 year old.  Thus my journey began, and will continue until the magic is gone.

To avoid boring you with unessary details, I've worked as a professional photographer, trade-show photographer, newspaper photojournalist and darkroom technician.

I would like to think my work is influnced by Minor White, Jerry Burchard, Edward Weston and Art Kane.  I look for details that may be overshadowed by the greater scope of the scene. I look for what may be easily overlooked.  I try to challenge myself to produce work that is, hopefully, uncommon in this day of digital photography.
