I began shooting with black and white film in the 70’s and expanded in to experimenting with high contrast film in my darkroom. My high contrast work was the first photography that I displayed and sold in local art shows in the San Francisco area. I eventually began doing color photography using slide film to capture the seascapes along the Monterey and Carmel coastlines.
I switched to digital photography shortly after the digital era began and have never stopped taking photos of landscapes along coastlines. I try to capture the scenery as a lasting memory of each specific site.
I was accepted by iStockPhoto.com as a contributing stock photographer in 2005. My passion, however, still remains taking nature and landscape photos around the country. My landscape photographs were selected in 2009 to be represented by the Katharine Butler Gallery in Sarasota, Florida. Since my wife and I decided in 2010 to build our retirement home in Gulf County (we moved to the Forgotten Coast in April 2014), I began to focus on photographing the Forgotten Coast and have been accepted in to the Bowery Gallery in Apalachicola and the Sea Oats Gallery on St. George Island. I tend to focus on two distinct styles of photography: panoramic landscapes and HDR (High Dynamic Range) landscape photography.
