A resident of Pleasanton,CA. I have been producing fine art photographs since 1985. Since retiring in 1999 I have devoted more time to photography, many times involving road trips on those fascinating secondary roads in remote areas of the West. My education in this field has primarily been in short courses or field studies with master photographers such as Mark Citret, Al Weber, Steve Dzerigian, and Robert Dawson. I am skilled at developing and printing my work in a conventional darkroom and still enjoy making traditional silver black and white prints that way. I am now making the transition to producing archival digital prints in color.
