Contemporary and Traditional Photography

I really enjoy the outdoors and natural light, most of my shooting is landscapes consisting of sunsets and moon rise/set, whether the shooting location is a parking lot, a hike into the mountains, or a stroll across a beach I'm always hunting the shot. My processing style mimics my enjoyment of the deep, vibrant, high-contrast colors of Kodachrome film to which I add a "warmer" cinematic look. With the convenience of having a camera on my phone has expanded my "opportunities" to capture images from the recognizable beauty in a flower or the fascinating look of a silhouetted tree. "Life doesn't wait for you to get your camera."

Recently educated into the world of traditional photography, I shoot with many formats of black and white film, that which I also develop and print in a darkroom. I enjoy shooting large format with a view camera and conveniently frustrated with the challenge of making each shot count (since my large format camera uses 4"x5" sheet film with a two shot capacity). I also shoot 35mm, with a Canon A-1. And I have 120 film in my fridge just waiting for the perfect project to shoot with the square format of a Hasselblad.
