My first encounter with photography was as a B&W film medium. After many years away from it, spent in publishing and software engineering. I returned to it at the end of the last millennium.

Once again I started with film (an old Canon F1 from the 50s) but quickly made the transition to almost exclusively digital, with my Nikon DSLRs (D70 and D300).

I do minimal image processing except in those cases where I am creating an image that is based on a photo but then goes off into its own reality.

I am most fascinated by the beauty in everyday scenes and objects where I am able share that perception with the viewer.

I have done the usual photographer things – exhibits, galleries, art shows, competitions; won some awards, taught and have works in various collections in the US and abroad.

I have been involved with several arts organizations and enjoy sharing what I have learned. I look forward to comments as I too still have much to learn myself.
