About the Book
I have been involved in photography since receiving his first camera, an Ansco box-camera, for Christmas many years ago. Although much of my work is landscape, any object or scene is fair game. I have earned recognition several times at the award winning Waterford Homes Tour & Crafts Exhibit . The Waterford Fair is the oldest juried crafts fair in Virginia . In addition, The Photographer's Forum Magazine has recognized his work. My philosophy is if something catches your eye then take the picture. You might only have that one opportunity in life to capture that particular image. Don't tell yourself you will come back another time. I take a snapshot in time to create a new moment. In the B&W world this new moment is a balance of grain, contrast, brightness and mood that results in a B&W image different from the original. B&W prints can give photos greater impact. Its up to the artist to determine what he or she wants represented.
