Artist's Bio

In 1991, after studying the technical aspects of photography at UMass Dartmouth, I began to photograph exclusively in black and white. Using light and contrast, my objective was to translate, onto black and white film, what the eye sees naturally in color. Earlier training at the Art Student’s League in New York City helped define my compositional ability. In 1997, my interest turned to color photography. My focus is primarily on landscape and street photography. Currently, I am involved with investigating the use of the computer as a digital darkroom.

I’ve studied with Bruce Dale and Jim Sugar, former staff photographers for National Geographic Magazine; Alison Shaw, nationally recognized Martha’s Vineyard landscape photographer, Linde Waidhoffer, and Karen Tennenbaum, an authority on the subject of digital photography processes. Currently, I am a member of Photography Atelier 2003, a seminar taught by Holly Smith Pedlosky & Karen Davis, Lesley Uniiversty, Cambridge MA.
