Capturing an image...

Each photo I've taken has encouraged me to learn something - about light and form, the sciences, history, architecture, or humanity. Photography has made me more aware of the world around me, both the obvious and the obscure. It is a pleasure to be able to share some of the impressions and refletions I've gathered along the way.

When researching my subjects and destinations, I've used maps, books, conversations, old miner's tales, videos, personal experience, and wherever else I could find tidbits of interesting or useful information about what I was shooting, or where I was.

In the PhotoSynthesis series, I've manipulated energy and light for my own creative purposes. The results are exhuberant abstractions of light, color, form and reflection. They were created by the motion of an illuminated subject, and/or the motion and long exposure time of the camera. The images are surprising, unique and infused with energy and color.


Projects, Causes, and Concerns...

Help support the Archeaological Conservancy...

Archaeological sites are critical to the understanding of our rich history and prehistory. Many are threatened or being lost to urban and industrial development, looters, vandals, or the elements. You can play an important part in helping to preserve our American heritage.

Lights, Action, Camera!

A photographic event with lights and people in motion. Local drummers drummed while local participants danced, swirled, gyrated, and hopped with LED lights of many kinds. Lights, Action, Camera was an interactive photo shoot to make abstract, interesting photos.
