I have been involved with photography since 1968. Attended three separated photography training schools: B.A. in Arts 1975, U.S. Army Photo School, 1977, and the School of hard knocks! Officially retired from photography in 2005, so could devote more time to my current hobby of photography. My blood is a mixture of D-76, Dektol, C-41, Cibrachrome & RAW capture. My religion is the zone system of Ansel Adams. All of my work is in the realm of using hdr/tone-mapping techniques and variations.
