Me and My Equipment
I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts from Eastern Michigan University, concentrating in photography. My early work was film capture in black and white using a Nikon F camera. Today I have moved into the digital world using a Nikon D700 with various lenses and a 2x teleconverter for added reach. The filters I use include neutral density filters and a circular polarizer. I do use a tripod for those times I want long exposures, but I mainly shoot handheld. My image editing software includes Lightroom, Photoshop, and ON1. All images on my site are copyright protected by Digimarc.
My imagery is a combination of the natural world, my photographer’s eye, and the experiences brought to it by the viewer. Whether the image is a sharp visualization of the world or is impressionistic, I invite the viewer to journey through a world of feelings, thoughts, and memories. Relying heavily on the viewer’s own reflections reveals our interconnectedness. This relationship creates individual interpretations limited only by our own imaginations. It is hoped that the viewer will engage in new and alternative ways of seeing the world.
