“The negative is comparable to the composer’s score and the print to its performance. Each
performance differs in subtle ways.”
-Ansel Adams

In my over 40 years of work as a photographer, I have been as passionate about
capturing great images as I have been about creating beautiful expressive prints. My personal pursuit
of Black and White images stems from countless hours spent in the darkroom, mastering the
many skills and aspects in what it takes to perfect the final print. Now, with the continuous
advancement of digital image processing, combined with my past darkroom experience, I am
able to create even richer photographs.
I hope you enjoy my photographs and that you will return regularly to this site.
