Photography has taken me down an interesting path – starting with family photos to an education and career in photojournalism and then to a more traditional studio business. Through it all I’ve kept my passion for photography, both digital and analog.
I have tried to be a student of American History and found that the two often coincide whether in collecting images, restoring old photos or bringing color to black-and-white photographs.
Leaving the literal confines of photojournalism released me to explore new concepts, whether it’s working with a pinhole camera, or photographing a scene in fragments and reassembling them into one photo, or even making pictures with an iPhone.
Please contact me if I can help you with a project.
