After more years than I’m admitting and more photos than I can count, a friend convinced me to publish my work. It started with my first book Distant Echoes, a self published study of life after dark. And it continues here at Redbubble with work from that book and elsewhere.

Most of the photographs you see here have had very little or no post processing. It’s not that I don’t believe in Photoshop, or that I’m too much of a purist to alter what the camera captures. It’s more that I feel that at some point the work stops being a photograph and begins to become a derivative work. And since I’m not a graphic artist, I normally limit the processing I do in Photoshop to the things I could do in a traditional “wet” darkroom. (The main differences being that the digital darkroom is cheaper, cleaner and more environmentally friendly.)

So come on in and have a look around. See something you like? Tell me about it. (Better yet buy it!) See something you don’t like? Feel free to tell me that too (as long as you remember that you not liking it doesn’t make it “bad”). Suggestion? Critique? Glowing adulation? I’m open to it all.

Most of all, enjoy yourself!

So hard, in fact, that it’s less hard to reject something twice. So hard that you’re willing to make double the work for both of us in order to avoid it. / See, it’s lik…

I'd Like To Thank The Academy...

…and all those in or out of the Extra-Ordinary Photography Group that voted for Ain’t No Color To The Blues in the November Avatar – Selective Colouring challenge / This isn’t the first time I’ve placed in a challenge, but it is my first win, and the fact that it was this particular shot is an even bigger thrill. In addition to being the only selective color piece I…

My First Sale. And thank you very much!

If I’d had to guess which of my 200+ photographic works would have been the first to sell a copy, I’m pretty sure that Roving would not have been on the short list of finalists. Shows what I know. My girlfriend, the professional knitter, told me that anything related to knotting, yarn, fibrous goods of any sort is a hot ticket these days, but I always figured she meant the actual ya…
