"Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter." -- Ansel Adams.

I got my start in photography early in my teens, when my older brothers built a darkroom in our basement. The first time I watched a photo emerge from a blank sheet of photo paper so enthralled me, I forgot to move the sheet from the developing tray to the stop bath. I watched until the photo went nearly black! I learned much, however, and loved shooting nature and sports, and manipulating photos in the darkroom. Ansel Adams' words capture the sense of wonder and appreciation I have in being able to capture some of the beauty, majesty and mystery in nature, and in the wider world around us.

The digital darkroom has replaced the chemical one, but the magic of capturing moments of meaning and creating beautiful photos continues. It harkens thoughts of another quote from Adams, who foresaw where photography was heading years ago:

"I am sure the next step will be the electronic image, and I hope I shall live to see it. I trust that the creative eye will continue to function, whatever technological innovations may develop." -- Ansel Adams

I hope you enjoy my work. I certainly enjoy producing it.
