About me

Location Puget Sound Region, WA, United States
Introduction We do not choose our passions, but are instead chosen by them; photography chose me early on. My journey began with the camera I received one Christmas as a lad. I shot everything; nothing and no one was safe. I took a photography class in high school and joined the yearbook staff. With my dad’s 35mm Argus C44R I became annoying to a whole new group of people. Going forward I found myself in uniform as a Marine Corps photographer shooting everything from photo spreads for print to accident investigations to portraits. At the end of this chapter, photography was relegated to “hobby” status; as time went by I was picking up my camera less and less. The journey may have ended with that, but one day I realized that something was missing; upon reflection I understood that “something” was photography. I picked up my camera and started shooting again. I saved up my “shekels”, bought myself a digital outfit and here I am, dangerous all over again. I am inspired by the interplay between light and dark, and while I tend to favor black and white imagery, I recognize that some images not only look better in color, but actually require color to make their statement. The journey continues.

I didn't spill the milk! It was already spilled when I got there.
