Artist's Statement:I developed an interest in photography as a teenager when my Dad gave me his Minolta SRT100 SLR camera, which I still have. I was hooked, and have been taking photos ever since. Over the past 30 plus years, I have shot countless roles of film  both color and black & white  and have spent many a day (and night) in the darkroom. I still love to shoot film - and will never part with my three film cameras - but I now shoot primarily digital because of the work flow, quick turnaround, etc. My darkroom now consists of my laptop and desktop PCs, which allow me to do many of the same things I did while working in the conventional darkroom  without all the chemicals!

I really enjoy being behind the camera and creating images for others (and myself) to enjoy. Whether I am creating an image of a landscape, or freezing a moment in time through a portrait, I offer the same attention to detail in my work. My recent focus (no pun intended!) has been to document the beauty and ecological diversity of the Blackstone Valley. I have found many photo-worthy locations right in our backyard.
