PHOTOGRAPHS


Most of the photographs on this site are created using film and a medium format camera. I rarely use a tripod because it allows me to work freely and with spontaneity.

Making a print is as much a part of my creative process as choosing the right moment to take a picture. I often spend hours fine tuning and producing an image before it will accurately express a particular mood I have in mind.

I work shadow and highlight areas to reveal or hold back details that can make or break a good image. In the wet darkroom I use techniques like toning, bleaching or pre-flashing to achieve an appropriate aesthetic.

Because of the size of my panoramic prints, I find the highly archival carbon pigment ink-jet process is well suited for their presentation. The negatives (from my 100 year-old camera) are scanned and worked with the same disciplines I use with an enlarger.

- PRINT SALES – Fully archival exhibition prints of the images on this website can be ordered directly from the studio. Prints range in size and edition (generally 25) and are window matted with acid-free mat board and acid-free backing. Prints are signed lightly in pencil on front and verso.
