I attended the University of Rhode Island where I studied photography under Bart Parker. I graduated with a BFA in fine art photography and a minor in communications. College was all bw work in the dark room, using many different cameras. It was great fun.
After college I worked in the photo-finishing business for many years. In the early 80's I started to shoot only color for my artwork and never returned to the world of black & white - until now. I am converting my color digital images to bw. I believe the eye you once had does not go away. What you saw in bw often lies behind the reason for creating a color image.
Whether it was part of my employment, or freelancing, I was often doing some commercial photography. When film faded, I left photo-finishing and turned to digital photography for my creative work.
My career also changed in a new direction as photography began to shift to digital and computer processing. I suddenly found myself in technical support, photography and videography. My first digital camera was the Kodak DC290 - with a huge 2 mp sensor. Now my phone is 4x that resolution.
My personal photography is usually reactive. I set out with an open mind and see what appeals to me. I hope you enjoy the images I have posted.
