BEHIND THE LENS
As a photographer for almost 50 years I have been involved in all types of photo media. I’ve produced photos from 620, 120, 126, 35mm roll film, 4x5, and 5x7 sheet films. In the 70’s I owned a studio and custom lab. I have developed and printed thousands of rolls and sheets of film, most of them, one at a time. I provided next day processing and printing long before it became as popular as it is today. Only in the past ten years has digital technology become a viable alternative to film. I no longer shoot and develop film and consume all those caustic chemicals that are required to produce images from film. I'm sure, with the advent of digital photo technology I have added years to my overall health. Now I almost exclusively shoot digital. It’s better for the health and the environment.
Over the years I have been published in many magazines and won awards for my creative work. Now I prefer to concentrate on the natural beauty of landscapes and nature. I like the viewer to get the felling of being in the picture. I take pride in a finished product that reflects exactly what I saw when I snapped the shutter. I believe that a good photograph must not only be technically correct, but also translate exactly what the photographer had in mind when they first conceived the shot.
In my black and white photos I like dramatic skies, deep blacks, and pure whites. In my color photographs, I like to see rich colors, great depth, and interesting subjects. I hope you enjoy my work.
