INTRO: The art of photography has little to do with technology: cameras, lenses, film type or megapixels.  Rather, how we see and use our ‘tools’.  For me, how I select elements to be included in my compositions and understand how weather and lighting influence colors and shadows in rendering of the image.

How long have I been photographing?  Good question!  Since the 4th grade.  Did I take courses?  Nope.  Self-taught.  Hopefully that shows to be a good thing!

Most my images are recorded using medium and large format film cameras.  Most recently my macrophotography is done with digital capture.  Again, not about the technology; rather - the vision.

I do nearly all production of my work.  I have a 44” large format 12-color printer and cold-mount roller lamination system.  I cut mats on a Wizard computerized mat-cutting system and cut/join molding for frames.  For canvas, I do my own coating & stretching on keyed stretcher bars out of Ontario, Canada.  The only work I out-source is mounting my photos to Dibond aluminum.  That is done locally by a studio here in Bloomington, Indiana.

If you are at all uncertain what size will best fit your space, let\\\'s do a virtual fitting.  On my website you will see a gallery of just virtual fittings (16 examples I believe).  It is an elegant process to fit the images in your space in different sizes and if you wish, different presentations (e.g., framed, canvas, triptychs).  Contact me and we will do it!
