A little about me, I am from Washington, DC. I studied photography at Rochester Institute of Technology where I earned my BFA in photojournalism. Afterwards, I didn't want anything to do with photography, so I quit. I dabbled here and there throughout but it wasn't until I realized I missed it and digital proved it was here to stay that I returned full force. I retaught myself the craft but really it was like riding a bicycle; once you learn you really don't forget.
I spent 30 years in public service. Much of my work doesn’t reflect people for a reason. My photography is my creative outlet, my solace, my time to reflect and to rejuvenate. I love the peacefulness I see and feel when I am creating. That peacefulness comes in many forms for me. Whether it’s nature and all its splendor or man-made with its lines and shapes creating my version of still life, it all has a way of making me feel calm.
Most photographers will tell you they pre-visualize their images before ever going out to create them. I, on the other hand, see in images. That means when I find something that is visually appealing to me, it presents itself as an image. That is why everything outdoors is fair game to me for creating. It is easy creating beautiful images in beautiful locations. I find it more challenging creating beautiful or interesting images from the often overlooked or ordinary things and places.
My work will not appeal to everyone and that's ok. Thank you for stopping by and check back from time to time because I might eventually create something that what will resonate with you.
