Photography has been a part of my life since the 1970s. I've always pursued and enjoyed it for its own sake, but have had it come and go as a component of making a living. From a youthful job assisting in a high-end DC studio straight through to consulting in the e-commerce sector, photographic aptitude and a technologist's world view have, at turns, contributed to everything else I do in one way or another. Of late, I continue to consult in web technology. As a natural offshoot, I often have a hand in the production of content - including the imagery that is an important part of any online presence. In keeping with the advice to always spend at least part of your time writing about or photographing what you know and love, I have a particular personal interest in the spectacle and drama of sporting dogs working game birds in the field. It's primal, and it's beautiful.
