My interest in photography began when I was a teenager, some 50 years ago, belonging to my high school's photography club and serving as the yearbook's
candid photographer for two years, roaming the school with a 4x5 Speed Graphic and a gigantic flash gun.
I became intensely involved in photography 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 family and work pressures and 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.
