From the Beginning

It all started when I was about 9 years old; music first, then photography.  I have been enjoying both for many years.  I have several cameras and  stringed instruments.  I enjoy expressive tools.

At the bottom of the page is a photograph of me in Yosemite. I made several trips to the park over many years, but I stopped trying to imitate Ansel Adams after a somewhat funny incident involving 40 pounds of camera equipment, coming to a stream I could not cross, and at the same time suffering from a stomach virus.

I mention that because I no longer try to copy anyone's style.  You may notice that my technique varies considerably.  That is because I have never really settled on one style that works for everything I like to photograph. Film, digital, color, black and white, even colorized black and white are all tools in my bag.

I am still learning.  Photography and art are life long passions of mine.
