About Me

Primarily, I regard myself as an artist who is a photographer. This is largely influenced by our current economics. I have done much editorial work in the past, regionally, nationally, as well as internationally.

For me, photography has always been somewhat dichotomous: on one hand, it serves as a tool of documentation, while at the same time, it can portray non-reality.  My journey through it continues to traverse betwixt these two points.

Much of my most recent work involves shooting film & utilizing the so-called "alternative" printing techniques.  It is no exaggeration to say that these techniques are in danger of becoming a lost art form owing to the advent of ink-jet printers.

With respect to "Ghosts & Apparitions,"  this body of work represents my counter-revolutionary retort to the Digital Age, as well as my homage to those 19th-century chemists who made photography a reality. Most of my efforts are directed toward furthering this particular portfolio.
