I picked up a camera when I was seven and started photographing my animal menagerie. I was in love with photography from then on, capturing moments, spirit and essence.
I attended Wells College in upstate New York where I majored in Art and sculpture. Even though I graduated in 1993 with a BFA and an Education minor, my own learning has not ended. I've taken nearly a degree's worth of photography classes at PNCA, Oregon College of Art and Craft, and New Space Center for Photography.
My favorite photographers are Elizabeth Sunday, Sally Mann, Imogen Cunningham, Diane Arbus, Harry Callahan, Edward Weston, Alfred Stieglitz, oh and who doesn't love Ansel Adams!
I love the old camera processes like Polaroid transfer, VanDyke brown, Cyanotype, and SX-70 Manipulation, but I work with a digital camera to provide the convenience and versatility to my clients.
I love working with people who are inspired by art and beauty. For me Photography is a way to capture a moment, a feeling, Magic!
