I have a BA in Fine Art Photography from the University of Redlands, Johnston Center. I am adjunct faculty at the University of Redlands Art Department with a decades of teaching experience. I teach Photography and Computer Graphics. I've been shooting for 30 years and made the leap to digital about two decades ago.
I'm interested in the way light interacts with the human form and how I can enhance that for with light.
I'm interested in the story that each person brings to the lens. Sometimes even the most pedestrian photo shoots can uncover a mystery and transcend the medium or the location or even the participants.
My goal for each photograph is to elicit a response from the viewer, to bring the photo to life, or as Roland Barthes wrote in Camera Lucida: "…I realized that some [photos] provoked tiny jubilations…" You know you've found IT when the photo jumps off the lightbox.
I love the studio and I like the adventures I get into when I shoot on location.
