Thanks for visiting my site. I have loved photography since the age of 10. From my first little plastic box camera purchased at an auction for $1, to the first Nikon acquired in the mid-1970ï¿½s, I have always had a camera and a passion for creating images. Early formal photographic education came during high school, where for two years, two hours a day, I had the opportunity to learn under the German master who taught us photographic technique, darkroom processes, and graphic design and communication. From this point, my parents let me set up a little darkroom in the basement of our small home in Ocala, Florida. I shot countless roles of 120, 220, and 35mm film; and developed and created photographic prints in the darkroom.
In 1976, as a sideline while attending college, I purchased ï¿½businessï¿½ cards with the tagline ï¿½Have Camera will Travelï¿½. From this point, I photographed weddings, athletic events, school group and individual photographs, nature and architecture, as well as individuals through personal portraiture, fine art, fashion, business, and glamour photography.
A graduate of the University of Florida College of Business Administration, my current photographic equipment includes Mamiya medium format film, and Nikon film and DSLR products. my photographic philosophy is one of capturing and preserving beauty in its various forms, and presenting photographs that will evoke emotion and enlighten the conscience.
Thank you again for viewing my images.
