Welcome to my photography site. I use traditional darkroom processes for silver gelatin film and paper for my photographs. I specialize in portraits and artistic nudes in black and white. While I am drawn to classic figure work I also like to explore the possibilities of the figure combined with other elements and moods. I am fascinated by all of the interrelated shapes, forms, textures amazing forms, patterns, moods, and emotions, the human body can convey. I primarily use black and white photography because I believe for the most part that form and structure are enhanced when color does not dominate the image.
With photographic portraits my intent is to convey more about the person than just their physical appearance. I want to portray the character, mood, or activity that represents the unique personality of the person.
