Some of my earliest memories are of chemical odors from my father’s darkroom and his floodlights for family photos. I got a Kodak Duaflex when I was in elementary school. Since then I have been taking photos.
For the last twenty years I have been serious about photography. I discovered the magic of taking and developing black and white images. I progressed from a 35mm to a medium format camera. Ten years ago I purchased an antique Linhof 4x5 view camera. It is now my primary camera. It helps me think more about composition and how I take pictures. I also have my own darkroom and do all of my own matting and framing.
Along the way I have had excellent classes and teachers including S. Preston Jones and John Sexton.
I have taught photography basics and darkroom technique at the Midland Center for the Arts for ten years.
