My Occupation Fine Art Photography
My Bio Originally self-taught, I have refined my craft and photographic artistry through study with master photographers, including Howard Bond, Jay Dusard, Don Kirby, Ray McSavaney, and Bruce Barnbaum. I work solely in black and white as a fine art photographer using a large format, 4x5-inch, camera. This format enforces a slower approach to the subject matter and studied composition. Exposure and development of the negative is carefully calculated to bring about the visual interpretation of the subject.
I am drawn to works of nature as well as the artifacts of civilization, and seek to portray in my prints a sense of design and order. Although the medium of photography is static, my works convey movement and force, a flow of shapes through the use of light. Isolating the abstract quality of natural and produced artifacts, I feel the viewer is allowed to see them for something other than what they are.
