Hello, and thanks for stopping by. :)
The abridged version: I’m a fine art photographer and monochrome junkie. I’m attracted to strong, bold colours and dramatic lighting with lots of shapes and shadows. My styles range from black and white film grain to wildly skewed perspectives but really, shadow-work is what I love to do most. (You could say I’m Hitchcock inspired.)

I spend much time with each image “hand-painting” the light into my work using the exposure/ISO/and shutter speed manually- no flash. I like the challenge, as well as the beauty that natural lighting brings. I shoot with only film lenses; Helios 44-2, Carl Zeiss 35/2.8, “Super Tak” Takumar 135/3.5. (I’m also fond of my Lensbaby Composer Pro.)

If you’re interested in publishing any of my works, please shoot me a p.m. and I’ll be happy to work with you.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I look forward to hearing from you. :)

Ciao!

There are scratches on my wall and my hair is severely…

Sales- thank you ♥

For the three people who have recently bought a print and two cards of my work, thank you!

I do hope you enjoy them and I’m truly honoured. :) / The Longest Dream (Sold: 1 wall print) / The Barkeeper’s Friend (Sold: 1 card) / Sky Tears are Falling (Sol…

Pay it Forward

Today I was at my mother’s house. I’d popped in to collect some library books and chit chat for a moment. I was pressed for time because my classes started last week (Behavioral Sciences/Substance Abuse) and 5 classes + 2 teens is nothing to sneeze at! She asked me if I wanted the new pair of house slippers on her sofa- her neighbor had given them to her: size 10, just my size. They w…
