Craig Roberts, Photographer
My interest in photography was sparked by my grandfather, who in his younger days had pursued photography. We had many conversations about setting up a darkroom and printing the glass plate negatives he had saved. Although we never did print those negatives, my desire to photograph had taken hold.
As a teenager, I set up a darkroom and began the task of learning the medium. I can still recall the excitement of seeing the image emerge on the paper in the developer. Soon after, I was introduced to a professional photographer, Art Haas and studied under him for some years. My only other formal training was attending workshops with Fred Picker in 1980 and Cole Weston in 1985. Over the years, I attempted a wide variety of photographic styles and including commercial assignments.
By the late 1980’s I decided to stop pursuing commercial work and just concentrate on my own vision, focusing my energies primarily on the landscape and the human form. Here in New Mexico the two genres are combined.
I still prefer the process using large format view cameras and the wet darkroom processes.
