Land, Sea & Sky

I began my journey into photography in the Summer of '84. I started with a used Pentax Spotmatic II with a few lenses. I was mostly interested in astrophotography at the time and started shooting the stars that summer. I was able to record comet Halley in 85/86 and the great comets of 96 and 97 (Hyakutake and Hale-Bopp). I added the fine Pentax 67 camera in 2007 and have been photographing like never before. I am branching off into other venues in photography and have discovered a passion for the landscape. I am fortunate to have a National Park as my backyard and access to the beauty that is Maine.

"Through photography I would present the significance of facts, so they are transformed from things seen to things known. Wisdom controlling the means -- the camera -- makes manifest this knowledge, this revelation, in form communicable to the spectator."

Edward Weston

"...few photographers ever master their medium. Instead they allow the medium to master them and go on an endless squirrel cage chase from new lens to new paper to new developer to new gadget, never staying with one piece of equipment long enough to learn its full capacities, becoming lost in a maze of technical information that is of little or no use since they don't know what to do with it."

"...the task can be made immeasurably easier by selecting the simplest possible equipment and procedures and staying with them. Learning to see in terms of the field of one lens, the scale of one film and one paper, will accomplish a good deal more than gathering a smattering of knowledge about several sets of tools."
