About the photographer
With a decades-long zeal for photography, it has always only ever been about composition and light—and about connecting with people—rather than about having a recognizable, recurring style.
- Ambient light, studio lighting
- Digital images
- You name it
- Magazine work, including multiple covers and feature articles

Let's stay real. Photographers—visual artists of all kinds—often enthuse about the beauty and unity of everything, using light to reflect the inner self, etc.
And that's fine, but I make photographs because I like making photographs.
Controlling a myriad of technical adjustments offers the freedom to make images with slightly different framing, or magnification, or depth of field, or exposure. That immediacy isn't easily replicated with other visual media.
Art, of course, must subsume the technology, for this to work. I feel more comfortable with artists than with technophiles.
One can spend a lifetime understanding composition, but the deeper quest lies in recognizing the many moods of light. Happily, that quest continues.
Thanks for visiting!

I find it hard to comment on your work; each photo is so well done, composition, light, the images, the tone from the wee flowers to the large ships, from the sweeping landscapes and seascapes, to the sunrise to sunset, yes, even your car, I love your work. – Steven MacDowall, NB, 2021
