I have been an avid photographer since I was in high school. Largely self-taught, I shoot both black and white and color in 35 mm and 120 mm formats, as well as digital. I enjoy working in the traditional black and white darkroom and also digitally manipulating photographs. I consider myself a photo artist and am open to all kinds of experimentation.
I currently do most of my art photography in Portland and the surrounding area. I shoot the majority of my photos in the context of other activities: going for a walk, running errands, visiting family and friends, traveling for business or pleasure, etc. I firmly believe there are always interesting images to be created if only I have the eye and skills to make them.
My photographic interests include nature, images of Japan (where I lived for nearly 10 years), urban and rural scenery, the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, cats, soft focus images and (semi)-abstract photography.
I hope you enjoy my images, which are for sale. Please feel free to contact me with questions or comments.
