Photography is very personal. No two people see the world the same. For as long as I can remember, and that is a lot of years, I have loved the sound the shutter makes when a picture is taken. I have taken thousands of images, some good, some bad, some great. I have learned from them all.
The current state of photography is in constant change. Digital photography is on the rise and I converted to digital 7years ago. The learning curve was steep. The equipment will change and evolve, but the art of photography will remain the same. How a picture is physically taken is less important than its composition. With that in mind, I bring to my work a unique perspective on the world. Many years of making images has let me concentrate more on the art and less on the technical.
I use the same techniques on the computer that I used in the traditional darkroom. Because the camera cannot see what the human eye sees, I use the tools available today to render the picture as I remember seeing it.
To ensure that the colors I have on my screen are those that are printed. I do my own printing and mating. I use different media including canvas. I have an Epson 9900 printer which allows me to print up to 44 inches wide by 100 feet using photographic paper.
From time to time I will experiment with new techniques. When that happens, the added techniques will be obvious.
