About Me"I shoot for the absolute pleasure and joy of creating something that wasn't there before...I like that elusive pursuit of creating. Creating for me is all about not conforming. To go in directions that are entirely my own. To leave the pack and take new trails...."
"I am addicted to the digital darkroom. What new wonders it has brought to photography. It has extended the boundries of all that we can do..."
"Sometimes I work toward a creative vision and sometimes I just go where the photo leads. Muses and models beware, sometimes you can be blured and even lost in my pursuit of the art..."
"I have a laid back approach to my work. The only rule of thumb is it must be fun...or else why do it at all..?"
"I also do selective Retouching and Photoshopping for those aspiring muses and models with self portraits. There is not a fee as long as it is mutualy benificial. I will not edit another photographers work without their permission and then only rarely..."
"High resolution prints of my images, signed and numbered, are available in various sizes. Pricing is very reasonable. I make very little profit off of these prints. I try and keep my art pure and not motivated by money..."
"Proceeds from print sales are divided, with 10 percent going to incured production and shipping cost, 30 percent to the photographer, 30 percent to the model and 30 percent to the charity of the moment, which is currently Casa de los Ninos, a transitional facility in Tucson, for women and children whom are in crisis.."
"Photo restorations are the bread and butter of what keeps my photography obsession funded, I do them for a small fee..."
“Look, I'm not an intellectual - I just take pictures.”
"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.”
“I take photographs with love, so I try to make them art objects. But I make them for myself first and foremost - that is important.”
“Whether he is an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts.”
“Think photographs should be provocative and not tell you what you already know. It takes no great powers or magic to reproduce somebody's face in a photograph. The magic is in seeing people in new ways.”
“When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I'd like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph.”
"I have discovered photography. Now I can kill myself. I have nothing else to learn."
"There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer."
"Character like a photograph develops in darkness."
