“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”

   — Henri Cartier-Bresson

I began my photographic career at the ripe old age of 10 years on a family trip to the Caribbean using a Kodak Signet 35 camera, a GE exposure meter, and Kodachrome film (ASA 10 and not to be confused with Kodachrome II).  Using Canon F-1 and A-1 cameras, I accumulated, from 1977 to 2004, a box-car load of slides and prints that continue to clutter my garage to this day.  I entered the digital era in 2007 and have since been making a wide variety of imagery including travel, landscape, macro, flower, wildlife, and, during several bouts of cerebral hemorrhage, wedding photography.  My primary equipment includes Canon 5D3, 7D2, Fujifilm X-T1, and X-T2 cameras.  I have given presentations to numerous photography groups on a variety of topics including the principles of visual design, travel, wildlife, and street photography.  My images have been published in national photography magazines, used by BBC-TV, hung in local art galleries, and earned awards in national and international competitions.  After 30 years in Minneapolis, I now reside in Davidson, North Carolina.
