My interest in photography started as a way to bring back images of the incredible places we visited in the backcountry. For the first few years, I focused exclusively on landscape photography. Ansel Adams, Galen Rowell, Joseph Holmes, Frans Lanting and others inspired me.


I began taking classes at City College of SF to learn more about photography and discovered so many incredible photographers along the way: Rolf Horne, Michael Kenna, Ruth Bernhard, Don Worth. I began to have an appreciation for the role San Francisco has played in shaping the history of photography.


In my own photography, I still lean heavily on the techniques I learned early, which rely almost exclusively on available light. I'm afraid my photography is a bit one dimensional because of that. I'm drinking the Kool-Aid of Strobist these days, and I'm interested to see what a different approach to light will bring to my photography.
