My photography concentrates on nature, primarily landscapes and wildlife. I strive to use lighting, color, and perspective to evoke a sense of “being there”. I travel extensively in pursuit of stirring images.
I also love the abstraction of black & white images with the medium’s focus on composition, texture, and tonal contrast.
My images frequently win awards at Marin Photo Club, Northern California Council of Camera Clubs, and at Marin Society of Artists.
I’ve been a Canon digital photographer since retiring from the medical profession in 2010. I produce my own photographic prints on museum-quality papers using a Canon Pro-1000 pigment ink printer.
I’m inspired by the landscape photography of Eliot Porter, Ansel Adams, and Sean Bagshaw. I’ve been fortunate to study with several excellent landscape photographers, among them Jennifer King, Gary Hart, Charles Needle, and Derek Von Briesen.
