About me


After a 4 year "Lull" I'm finally getting back into taking pictures on a steady basis. I was working in commercial labs for 15 years when I moved to the country where I found that there were no commercial labs to work in. I've always printed my own stuff and I was still a holdout for film and not into digital, so my lack of contact with the labs took it's toll. Plus I think it was good for me to take a break and get a fresh perspective on things.

A friend of mine upgraded his digital camera system and I was forced to take the old one. It has changed my thinking and I'm off and running again. A good swift kick never hurt anyone.

I've always shot landscapes and find I'm still doing it out of habit but I'm excited about experimenting with other subjects. Color has been my choice since I started out but I think I'll try a little B&W also.

I found this site quite by accident or maybe I should say fate. I look forward to learning digital and fresh ideas from what I see to be a great group of people.

Right now I'm shooting film with a Cannon F-1
and my Digital is a Nikon D-100. 95% of my stuff is with a 24mm.

I'm scratching the surface with Adobe Photoshop and I have the Nikon Capture 4 software to load when I upgrade my computer.

    I would like to possibly use some of your images for wildland firefighting training. How much would you charge for such a service?
