Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty.

--Tanizaki Junichiro


I have no interest in creating technically "perfect" photographs. My goal is to elicit an emotional response from the viewer by creating an atmosphere, a mood.

I prefer low-light and night photography, especially scenes with dramatic light, shadow, select focus and solitary figures (usually silhouetted). I also like imposing architecture, negative space and rain.

I shoot digital and film with Nikon, Hasselblad, Fuji and Zeiss cameras using mostly manual focus lenses. What little post-processing I do is done in Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 and the NIK Collection.

PLEASE DO NOT ADD ME AS A CONTACT UNLESS YOU ARE TRULY INTERESTED IN MY WORK and don't be offended if I don't reciprocate.

All my photographs are copyrighted and are not to be used for any commercial or nonprofit purpose without my written consent. This includes internet blogs, internet pages, and any other forms of digital or analog reproduction. If you have any questions, please contact me.
