Bio

Having had a strong interest in photography since the age of ten, I’ve explored a variety of subjects, styles and formats through the years. I have worked with 35mm, medium format, and digital equipment. I’ve worked extensively in a traditional black and white darkroom. Now, primarily shooting digitally with a Nikon D1X, I find that I have a lot more control over my final work by utilizing the digital darkroom with Photoshop.

As my style has changed significantly from where I started, I have been drawn to the creative, fine art and abstract side of photography. Through the world of digital imaging, I have worked heavily with the art of photo manipulation, creating something beyond the traditional photograph. This coincides with my continued interest in traditional photographic images, making use of the best of both worlds.

My love of architecture has provided a strong foundation for many of my images. Having many years of experience shooting advertising images in the real estate business, my images today are much more graphic by design. I emphasize simplicity, graphic elements, and color in the majority of my work. I enjoy finding the beauty in the ordinary, where most would not pause to look. During my photographic career, I have done work with portraiture, commercial photography, wedding photography, special event photography, marketing imaging and photojournalism.

As a 8 time recipient of the “Photographer of the Year” award in the Shenandoah Photographic Society, I have received numerous awards. My work has been honored with many “Photo of the Day” winners at Kodak, and other internet photographic galleries. In January 2005, I was awarded a Third Place win from National Geographic in a National photo competition. Many of my images have been published, including a cover image in a regional magazine, as well as featured in Shutterbug Magazine, a national photographic publication
