a retired U.S. Navy officer who has enjoyed photography for decades. I have embarked on a second career that is not photography-related,
but I still enjoy taking pictures of people
and places. Therefore, I seek out creative and
The finest compliment I can get is from someone who is so amazed and pleased with the images I take of them that they say, "I can't believe that's me in the photo." And that happens a lot. It can happen for you, too. If you have rarely or never been pleased with your pictures, then I would welcome the chance to work with you.
I have been working for over 25 years with one of
the best custom professional color laboratories in the Southeast
to provide my customers with the finest quality prints, whether
the print is a 4x5 inch or a wall mural.
I shoot with a variety of equipment, from the latest Fuji
S3 and Kodak DCS Pro 14n DSLR (digital single lens reflex) cameras to a 4x5-inch
view camera. I work with both film and digital because (1)
digital isn't quite the "magic bullet" advertisers
would have you believe it is, and (2) film isn't dead yet. And
I still love using my Nikon film cameras.
I have taught photography classes at North Metro First Baptist Church. I also collect (and repair) some cameras. My oldest camera has a patent
date of 1911, almost 95 years ago (and I can still get film for
it!). I have several pre-World War II cameras, a Graflex 4x5 Speed
Graphic, Graflex 4x5 Super Graphic, and a rare Gowlandflex 4x5
twin-lens reflex camera, one of only about 600 made by the famous
glamour photographer and inventor Peter Gowland.
