My interest in photography started back in high school. Over half my work is black and white, which I prefer for its visual impact and that I can print it in the darkroom (although I've recently gone digital). About a third of my collection is female figure work, another third is historic sites and the rest is various subjects. The interest I've recently started is studio table top images.
Female Figure (Nudes)
In addition to capturing the model’s mood and beauty, many of my figure compositions use light and shadow to emphasize the models curves and skin textures. I see my work as a modern extension of an art form that has been around for centuries.
My other favorite subject is American historic sites, especially the interiors of old buildings. I try to find aspects and angles that are not your typical post-card shot. Two favorite location themes are the California Gold Country and Lancaster County, PA (where I grew up).
I am a member of the Zone III Photographic Society (on the San Francisco Peninsula) and the Western Portrait and Figure Group (WPFG).
Published a Lancaster County image in Peterson's
Photographic in March 1999. I have had several
shows in cafes and one gallery.
