My life as a photographer is immeasurably rewarding. Finding an
image by chance or creating one by design offers a blend of challenge and satisfaction. For over 25 years I've been asked to photograph people from many different walks of life. I always feel a camaraderie build with people when the camera's present and we're all ready to roll.
My work takes me into industries and institutions of all stripes. It's
how my photography continually evolves. What I see in those worlds through a lens - and what I include, exclude and enhance by light
shapes my sense of place.
A travel assignment on saving a lighthouse in Maine, exploring
foreign ports, or precious work in my own backyard confirms that the
exotic is visually mesmerizing but so is everyday life.
Commercial assignments that range from larger-than-life robots to
miniature espresso pods arouse just as much passion as my photos
of people. Whether I'm photographing a series on adults with braces,
programs at the local YMCA, or a recycling project, my passion and
the camera join forces.
These qualities are enmeshed in all my work including images I exhibit.
I've won regional and national awards (i.e., Peninsula Fine Art Center
in Va, and International Center for Photography, Golden Light Award
in NYC). My latest collection, Aging Beauties, Photographs of Seasoned Flowers, is now being shown in galleries and museums here in the United States.
