I've been lucky to have had many opportunities to photograph in Asia, Europe and Mexico, New Mexico (30+years), the Pacific Northwest (15 yrs) and now Wisconsin.  I have worked in all camera formats, but favor infrared and high-speed B&W films for interpretive images. 

Much of the work here is from living on Whidbey Island in Washington State with forays far afield. Now the journey goes on starting in 2022 in Madison Wisconsin. My emphasis is still with B&W film, but with scanning of the film for digital printing. The color images are byproducts of using a digital camera to set up lighting before exposing the B&W film.
