“Painting with Light”

I started my journey with a camera in 1971.  I learned from my teacher Ansel Adams that the word photography = Photo means light and Graphics = to write.  “To write with light”

I am a PPA Master Photographer published many times and have work in many collections and venues.  I have 3 published fine art books.. “Inner Visions”, “Vertical Dreams” and “Netherworlds”.

People see my work and ask…”is that a painting or a photograph?.  Both.  I paint with light.  I use a series of techniques to bring a 3D effect to every day views of the world.
