My love affair with photography began over 50 years ago as a child when I developed my first roll of film in my bathroom. In the early 1970s I drove across the continent to attend an Ansel Adams workshop which began a relationship that lasted until his death. For ten years afterwards I assisted in the production of Adams Special Edition Prints of Yosemite.
After the turn of the millennium I stopped photographing, sold my film cameras and darkroom equipment and burned my lifetime of negatives, a hiatus that lasted for a decade until I was seduced by a tree.
I really owe my return to serious photography to a tree and a lifelong friend and fellow Zeiss lens enthusiast who encouraged me. In 2014 I purchased a new Nikon D810, a Nikkor 70-200 zoom, several Zeiss lenses and re-entered the photography world which had gone digital while I was asleep for a decade. My work so far has been close to my home in the mountains of northern California's Lost Coast.
