Welcome to my website!
On this website I have both black and white portfolios, arranged by location, mostly from US national parks, as well as more recently taken color images.
I consider myself first and foremost a black and white traditional landscape photographer. My black and white images were mostly taken with a 4x5 Wista view camera. Since 2009 my photographs were taken with high resolution, full frame digital cameras. I currently use the Nikon D800E camera. Black and white photographs have excited me since I first saw an exhibition of Ansel Adams photography. The power and beauty that could be achieved by the elimination of color from the image was fascinating to me. The composition, lighting, textures, and patterns become more important to the image when there are no colors to overpower those qualities.
Since I have worked with digital cameras I have also made color images. The color portfolios include traditional landscapes, duotone images, as well as digitally created and impressionistic-looking color images. Most color images were taken with high resolution, full frame digital cameras.
The first of the non-traditional color portfolios I call "Florascapes". These images are derived from photographs of flowers, but digitally morphed into images I see as landscapes.
The second type of non-traditional color portfolios contains images in a "Photo-Impressionistic" style. Some say they look like watercolor paintings, others think they look more like pen-and-ink drawings.
I have added a new black & white portfolio to the website called: Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly. These photographs were taken from late November to early December of 2016. This is the first time I have ever visited either place, and they were different than I had imagined them to be.
