“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 35 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 to view

new photographs posted in the Image of the Week Gallery.
