About me

It seems to me that almost any subject might be used to express an idea or feeling or create an atmosphere...For me the print must be visually compelling. The surface should seduce, and the content is that which slips under the skin afterward.
I work with film and make prints in a wet darkroom.    The images shown here are toned and hand painted silver prints.

For the past eight years I have lived in a small quiet Victorian town, where natural elements still outweigh man made ones.

I spend most of my time makeing images and enjoying my five year old son.

I am interested in photographing people who like what I,ve been up to and want to collaborate with me.  TFP
