About Me

I work in portraiture. 
I value an inquiring mind
and an expressive personality
over physical qualities in the people
I choose to photograph.

Two of my photography books are available:
Triptych: Sixteen Months (2010).
Double Exposures: Essays in Portraiture (revised ed. 2010).

Find my books online here.

"Strangely, the only thing that I tolerate, that I like, that is familiar to me,
when I am photographed, is the sound of the camera.  For me, the Photo-
grapher's organ is not his eye (which terrifies me) but his finger:  what is
linked to the trigger of the lens, to the metallic shifting of shutterblades. 
I love these mechanical sounds in an almost voluptuous way, as if, in the
Photograph, they were the very thing — and the only thing — to which
my desire clings, their abrupt click breaking through the mortiferous layer
of the Pose.  For me the noise of Time is not sad:  I love bells, clocks,
watches — and I recall that at first photographic implements were related
to techniques of cabinetmaking and the machinery of precision:  cameras,
in short, were clocks for seeing, and perhaps in me someone very old
still hears in the photographic mechanism the living sound of the wood."

— Roland Barthes

With Jim Adams on the Blue Ridge Parkway, February 2007

Without culture
there is no photographer.
Without understanding of man
there is no photographer.
There is just a
clicker shutter snapper.
