Introduction I am an artist that works with light. Photography is a process that captures light in a way that I can print it. George Eastman said, “Light makes photography. Know light ... and you will know the key to photography.” I photograph by available light; natural or artificial, as this is the light we live by. I make my own prints with current technology using traditional techniques. I compose tightly in the viewfinder and I print full frame. The viewer sees exactly what I saw in the viewfinder. Ansel Adams said, “To visualize an image ... is to see clearly in the mind prior to exposure, a continuous projection from composing the image through the final print.” It is a process of capturing light to show it in the print. In the beginning, it is all about the light; in the end, it is all about the print.
