My interest in photography began when I was a teenager, some 40 years ago.
I became intensely involved throughout the 1980s and divided my attention
between large format nature/landscape work and 35mm urban explorations,
all black and white. I attended the Ansel Adams workshop in one of the
last years he was active. I also had several one-person shows in North
Carolina and participated in many juried shows. My involvement waned throughout the 1990s,
largely due to a decreased tolerance for spending so many hours in the
darkroom. Interest was rekindled
when digital camera and inkjet printer technology advanced to where the
print quality was acceptable to me. I now work primarily in color.
I am an amateur photographer in what I hope is the best sense of the word.
I may sell a print now and then, but it's purely a labor of love for me.
I am located in
Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
