As part of my final project for Ohio Center for Broadcasting, Lakewood, Colorado, we were tasked with creating a music video. I did mine in the classic MTV style. It took four takes to film each player. The drums were the loudest angle but I stood there with my camera between the symbols and drums.... Continue Reading →
I25 North through southern Colorado. These really look awesome when seen as a 7x21 inch print. (or larger!) The clouds have some funky texture due to the resolution or lack there of. See square section image at the bottom of the page.

Out of work Looking No calls . . . It's one of those Covid days. The backstory of “A Covid Kind-Of-Day” It was early afternoon. I was bored out of my mind. The interviews the week before, all fell through. I began to watch “Rum Diary” and got thirsty and inspired. I grabbed my camera,... Continue Reading →
I often go for walk at Cherry Creek State Park outside of Denver. Denver is very dry during the summer months but in between Spring and Summer there is a magical time where the landscape looks like a place that could be from the wetlands of the Northeastern parts of the USA. It was on... Continue Reading →
Having made the transition back to black and white, I went through my photographs I took in January 2019 at the Grand Canyon and converted several of them to black and white. I find many of the B&W versions are better than the colour ones. What do you think? Please help me by sharing this... Continue Reading →

Last year, 30 years later, I sent Paul a letter introducing myself and how I knew him. He wrote back opening up an opportunity for... Continue Reading →
It is the year 2020. How appropriate it is to look back over the 44 years since I first bought a 35mm SLR camera and began my photography. Maybe to look at the physical me is a good place to start. I have assembled the self-portraits I have from those years. They are not the... Continue Reading →

Beginning with my trip to Montery, CA in early spring this year, I'm rediscovering B&W. It's a fascinating process, both chemically or digitally, plus being forced to visualize the basics of an image void of reality's color. It's very refreshing. ... Continue Reading →
When I captured this photograph I knew the foreground would be B&W. I wanted to show that we live in a man-made world. We spend our lives inside. Inside building. Inside books and smartphones. Inside our heads. Inside cyberspace. We often get stuck there, not venturing outside. Perhaps we are all just inside Plato's Cave.... Continue Reading →
I have another grouping of images that I captured while in Monterey CA, last Spring. 2019. While there I visited all the galleries in the small town of Carmel by the Sea with a special visit to the Weston Gallery. I finally saw the real prints of Adams, the Westons, Karsh, Penn and others. I... Continue Reading →
