My photo art begins with a digital camera and software. It ends when light, color, design, and mood harmonize to best express my vision. The image may look like a straight photograph, a painting, drawing, etching or sketch. Whatever works is what works for me. Even then, over time, images are open to more interpretation and adjustments. New skills, practice, and self-realizations are my continuous adventure as I create images.
I have been a self-taught freelance photographer for over 40 years. Commercially, I apply my photojournalistic style and fine art sense of design to the capture of environmental portraits, events, and documentary projects for a variety of nonprofits, corporate clients, and government agencies who value my eye and the way I approach their assignments.
I have always created original photo art with 35mm, 2 1/4, and view cameras first using a wide variety of BW, color, and infrared films, paper stocks, and darkroom techniques; then with digital technology which I love!
