Biography

A native of Ohio and an Oregonian since 1976, I have been a fine art photographer for going on 40 years now, exhibiting my work in galleries, museums and art centers throughout the Northwest, all while teaching full-time at Linn-Benton Community College in Albany, Oregon.

Now retired, I have matriculated from large-format film photography to digital photography, and lately have been photographing primarily in the infrared spectrum, a hauntingly beautiful range of light. I’ve always preferred black-and-white for my work, in part because it takes me one step away from the everyday world of color. Infrared takes me a step further, transforming the ordinary into something else again.
