About My Work
Late in a career in business, I discovered a passion for the fine art photograph and, through extensive personal study, developed my skills and personal vision as a photographer. In the process, I came to a deep understanding of how the photographer, the camera, and a subject intersect to create a compelling image.
People see the world in different ways and respond to it according to their own personality and experiences. Instead of trying to capture the world in the same ways that others see it, I express my unique viewpoint. By mastering the tools provided by the camera, I create photographs that portray a personal view of the world and communicate what I see to others. These are the images that captivate, inspire, and challenge me because they come from a place that is inside and personal to the photographer.
My photographs have been exhibited in many galleries in the Detroit area, as well as nationally and internationally, and they are in several private collections. I am a member of Professional Photographers of America, and I work from my studio in Berkley, Michigan.
In 2010, my print "Cattail" won the prestigious Gold Medal award in the 97th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition at Detroit’s historic Scarab Club. Since its founding in 1907 by a group of artists and art lovers, the Scarab Club has been active in the Detroit arts community. The Gold Medal is the Scarab Club’s highest and most esteemed prize presented to its members, and this was the first time it was awarded to a photographer.
