About the Artist
I first fell in love with photography in the days of film.
Back then I developed my own film and did all my own silver gelatin printing in the darkroom. It was all very exciting and magical.
Eventually, I began to fall in love with color photography. Dealing with color labs was never fun and the results were often less than my vision, so when digital came along and I was given the power to have total control of my images from capture to print, wow! What a blessing.
I have a fine arts background, so I tend to think of my camera as my paintbrush and lean to the fine arts side of photography. I consider myself primarily a landscape photographer, but in truth, I will capture anything, and anyone that tugs on my heart strings.
This whole world is a jewel, precious beyond compare, and I am a witness to that beauty. If I am blessed enough to help in anyway to preserve it, I will feel privileged.
