My Work

I think of myself as mostly a street photographer.  Subjects are varied and only recently did I purchase a tripod. I have many mentors not the least of which is Elliot Erwitt.  I do tend to be stuck in the past of photography, preferring the golden age of the 30's , 40's and 50's with their wonderful B and W photos - deep blacks and brilliant whites.


I grew up and now reside in Colorado.  My father taught me as a teenager the photography techniques that I rely on.  He had an old Leica IIIc that he gave me to use.  I still shoot film as well as digital.
