My photographic journey began in the mid-1970s with a Nikkormat FT2 camera. For many years my Nikons and I were inseparable! Circumstances in my life changed and, for too long a period, I rarely touched my cameras. In the fall of 2005, with the purchase of my first "real" digital camera, the love affair began again.
There have been many photographers whose work I have admired, but my favorites have been Gordon Parks, Pete Turner, Jay Maisel and Ernst Haas. All shared a passion for capturing life as they viewed it. None were limited by what the standards of the time may have dictated.
Whatever I photograph, I want to capture it the way that I see it in my mind's eye. This could either be the stark reality of what is in front of me or it could be the way I imagine it to be.
I have many interests in life and, hopefully, these are reflected in my work. I may be attracted to a subject by its color, shape or texture. What is most important to me, however, is my initial reaction to the subject. That is what I want to capture.
My new images reflect where I am currently as a photographer, but I will also scan many of my old slides to show where I have been on this journey.
This site will always be under construction, so please come back often to see my new images.
Thanks for taking a look and I hope you enjoy your visit!
