Photography is the most wonderful way to spend your life.
I have tried to understand the sense of wonder, the attempt to organize chaos, the truth of relationships and the thrill of seeing what I sensed in each image and pass that on to the viewer.
I was an art major/journalism minor who had a studio for seventeen years and then made over forty films and freelanced for the next thirty years. Worked on Major productions, taught in several colleges, was artist-in-residence a few times in wonderful locations. Worked with the National Park Service, contributed my images to non-profits, and freelanced internationally. And I am still trying to understand this great need to pass it on.
