While growing up in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio, I found myself becoming fascinated with photography at about the age of fourteen. My first “camera” was a Quaker Oats round box with a pin hole! My first real camera was a Kodak Instamatic with the 126 film cartridge and the flash cube.
My first real job I photography was in my junior year of high school. I worked for a crusty old commercial catalogue photographer. Most of my time was spent in a darkroom, loading 8 x 10 film backs. On rare occasion, I got to spend time in the camera room moving lights and product to be just so. The lessons learned are still valuable today. I left the commercial studio in favor of working in a portrait and wedding studio learning the classic poses and lighting techniques.
Today, I am using a lot of the same techniques that I learned years ago. While most of my work is in architectural and product photography, I find myself experimenting more with digital and different lighting “tools”.
I hope you enjoy my work. Thanks again and enjoy.
