My Bio I have been having my photographs published regularly since 1994, first in North America and later in Japan and the U.K. as well. Since 2005 I have been writing articles to go with my photographs. From the beginning I have been interested in landscape photography and more recently in mountain photography. Now based in Japan, I spend most of my photographic outings in the mountains of central Honshu.

I continue to shoot with film and always travel with at least two cameras - a 35mm and a medium or large format camera as well. A few years ago I simply preferred film over digital. Now I simply can't afford digital. So for the time being, I do all my "serious work" with my film cameras and use a compact digital just for snapshots while on the trail.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
details of interesting rocks around the world. The idea is to publish a collection of abstract and painterly images. The selection looks great and many of the images have already been published in magazines. Maybe sometime in 2012...
