I have 50 years of experience in many phases of photography. I have been a wedding and commercial photographer, a darkroom technician, and a teacher.
Currently, I am concentrating on teaching and lecturing and teach darkroom workshops at the Dallas Center for Photography. Link
I am comfortable with both film and digital processes. While I have historically preferred black and white film and the darkroom for monochrome images, all color work and some recent monochrome is created and printed with digital methods.
After a lifetime of landscapes, architectural and documentary work, I wish to make more photographs that I first “see” in my mind, rather than capturing a scene that I encounter. As part of that process, I’ve moved into the studio, experimenting with still life, macro, and small abstract setups. I believe that one must never stop learning and moving forward!
