Biographical Narrative

I was born and raised in Oregon and have been doing photography for over 20 years. I received an art education,  at the Central Oregon Community College earning an A.A. in Art and then a fine arts education at the Pacific Northwest College of Art earning a B.F.A. in Photography.

My work is an ongoing exercise in exploring the beauty of life and the rivers of Oregon. Primarily I am interested in the relationship between light and water and the infinite number of colors it can reflect from its surroundings. I hope the viewer is left with a certain emotional or sensual response from seeing my work. If it’s successful, the viewer will feel it.

My tools are relatively simple, natural light, tripod, and my camera. My exposures range from one sixtieth of a second to two seconds, the average being about one second.  Currently I’m using a digital Nikon and a Nikkromat 35mm (film) camera . Selected images have been professionally printed on metallic paper which has a glossy finish and metallic appearance that creates an image with exceptional visual interest and depth.

Artist Statement

The attraction to rivers, the rhythms of colors that it reflects from its surroundings and the moods it creates are the foundations of my photography. I feel that photographing water is the best way to express my life and emotions. My photographs are the truest expressions of my mind. The photographs capture more than the subject but an emotional essence of the scene. I desire not only to capture the beauty of what I see, but also to add some aspect of myself and to share my distinct point of view with others.

The colors in the rivers are always changing, life is always changing and so am I.
