I’ve been interested in photography since my student years, in the early
70’s, when I worked in camera stores both in New Mexico and in San
Francisco, where I attended art school. Growing up in the western United
States I developed a love of the wide, open spaces and rugged wilderness. I
was mostly influenced by the great landscape photographers of the past
century and for years I approached photography much as they did: tripod
mounted large and medium format cameras, tack sharp lenses set to f/64, and
an almost manic to achieving maximum tonal range on my black and white
prints. Then I gave it all up and went digital for several years. I’ve
always been interested in alternative photographic processes such a pinhole
photography and historic printing processes such as cyanotype and kallitype
and a few years back, when Freestyle Photographic in Southern California
started pushing Holgas and other low-res cameras, I bought several Holgas
and slowly got hooked. In the past 3 years or so I’ve been very active in
Lomography and the analogue community. At the end of 2009 I was chosen by
Lomography to be one of the beta testers for their Spinner 360 camera and
just recently one of my images was selected as one of the top 10 images at
Lomofest in the Ukraine.
