I am a visual storyteller. I've been making pictures for some 40 years. I travel the world in search of the right image. in the right light at the right time.

Maybe this photograph is a little too radioactive. In my defense I cannot predict how WordPress will compress my already compressed .jpeg. Many times I over compensate. Don’t we all? Now that a bit of my life is getting back to some kind of normal feeling workflow I have to be very careful not to […]


All the news that fits. But, first the picture. It’s actually a layered picture containing a scene on a New Mexican highway and a Jefferson Parish expressway. Mostly, it’s the New Mexican photograph that rose to the top of the layer. Obviously, it’s heavily worked over in post production. I wasn’t sure how far to […]


Exploded. The light exploded. The developed and processed image actually caught me by surprise. It did everything I didn’t think that it would.

And, sometimes I just talk about pictures, which is what you came to read. This is about pictures, or rather my working methods. Whenever a subject finds me, I try to give […]


It comes when it comes. Inspiration. I was talking with a friend a couple of nights ago when she said that inspiration is everywhere. I know that. But, I forgot that I did. So. Here’s the best possible example. We had a big day out. We went places. Well, two places. The gasoline store and […]
