About

Welcome and thanks for stopping by.

For the past 30 plus years photography has been a love of mine that continues to grow. As you may have noticed from my portfolio, I have a particular soft spot for photographing people. This includes, young and old, weddings and fashion / modeling photography.

Recently I have been going back to my roots and publishing a lot more photos in black and white. Today however, creating a black and white photo is a lot easier using Lightroom and Photoshop compared to the chemicals of a darkroom.

My first camera was a Zeiss Ikon Stuttgart “nettar” camera made in 1957 (it was my father’s, who gave it to me in the 1970s). From there I shot a number of years with a Pentax until purchasing a Canon 7E. I have continued to support Canon where today the equipment I use includes a Canon 5D Mark II and 30D and a number of primes (24L, 50L, 85L, 135L, 200L, 400L). The most recent addition has been Canon’s new 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II. As to lighting, I use the Elinchrom Ranger AS Speed packs and accessories.

Thanks again for stopping by. All comments and critiques are encouraged
