Being and Seeing

The experience of being fully awake and aware in the moment, and seeing the beauty in nature, is the essence of my photography. I am inspired to capture it and share it with others. I welcome you to my website and invite you to explore some of the images I have enjoyed creating over the past 28 years.

Great lighting in a landscape is wonderful to experience and a challenge to capture. Light is also a challenge to reproduce in a fine art print. This is an art I have practiced and refined over many years. For 20 years I photographed with film, both black & white and color; now I shoot fully digital. Working in a darkroom developing and printing black and white images taught me a great deal about how to control tones in an image. Ansel Adams’ work provided me with insight and inspiration.
