   I enjoy exploring the wide world of photography through a range of techniques and subjects. My digital images often feature regional landscapes and points of interest. Traditional subjects like lighthouses, landscapes, and florals are always fun. But I’ve had great success photographing colorful and hard-to-capture subjects like koi fish and red poppies. Look for these when you come to the gallery!

   A special series I’ve developed is my somewhat abstract “Into the Light” photos, which are often mistaken for paintings. These unique photos are a beautiful infusion of movement and light. I am painting with my camera, often shooting 1,000+ images to find the one that captures the desired emotion, color, quality, and flow of light. I leave the image practically “raw,” and often print them on metal for a gorgeous finish and seamless look.

   An age-old technique that I specialize in involves hand tinting photos. This very detailed process is like "painting photos," where I begin with black and white photos that were taken with film and developed in the darkroom onto a special fiber-based paper. Then I paint them with special transparent oil paints that result in a luminous and often dream-like image. Sometimes I work with infrared film, which reflects infrared light from various natural sources. This adds nicely to the dreamy nature of the hand coloring process. And for a striking effect, I might tint a single image on the photograph, leaving the remainder black and white.

    My work is available as Canvas gallery wraps, metal prints, framed work, prints and card. I also offer a lovely variety of gift items such as card boxes, mousepads, metal ornaments, bookmarks, and magnets.
