As a photographer I have always been influenced by “the Process”. Shoot the subject, process the image, print the image, then finally present or display the photograph. In the past year I have discovered and I’m exploring the possibilities of “mobile photography”. Photography has always been “mobile” for me, the concept of doing all four steps of “the Process” without going to the studio is new and intriguing. Using my phone as a processing lab and publishing platform is a freeing experience.
Artist & Artisan, Educator, Entrepreneur, Digital Evangelist and Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop, I grew up in small town America in the 1950-60s with little encouragement for my future. Yet I worked my way through college to be a photographer for Fortune 100 clients like Coca Cola, a Professor of Art at Howard University, and receiving awards from the National Endowment of Arts, DC Commission of Arts, Humanities Council of Washington DC, Mobile Photography Awards, the Prix de la Photographie, Paris and the Black & White Spider Awards, London. I am currently a columnist for Examiner.com on Photoshop and Digital Photography and IT media consultant for the SBA.
