It was in the early 1970’s when my interest in photography started. After going to “The School of Modern Photography”, my interest grew. I started doing portraits and weddings, but this was not what I wanted to do. I did not see this as much of an art form and I had a strong interest in Nature, Fine Art and Abstract photography.
In early 2000 I started working with digital photography. Digital photography gave me the freedom to abstract or manipulate images inside the camera and thru the use of a computer. When I want to create an abstract image on the computer, I look for a subject that will look interesting when completed.
“Today with digital photography, you need to be not only a photographer but an Artist of Photography. This includes, the ability to create your own work, from concept to the finished print. You should to be able to complete at least 75% of your work within your own studio.“
“The images I photograph, I try to make unique in their own way. My work consists of both Original and Limited-Edition prints, all which are numbered and signed. The original print will be one of a kind and will not be duplicated in any form. Limited Editions will be made in editions of 10 or less of any given image.”
“Most of my work is black and white, and printed on fine art papers. Hahnemühle Fine Art papers and Epson Legacy, are my papers of choice for Original prints and Epson Cold and Hot press for Limited Edition prints. When an original image is printed on Hahnemühle papers, each print will have a serialized numbered hologram on the backside of the print along with a matching hologram on a certificate. Each serial numbered original print will also be registered with the Hahnemühle Paper Co. in Germany.”
