While working full time as an IT professional, I have been practicing photography for over 20 years. I was first inspired in 1988 when the ashes of the recently erupted Mount Pinatubo produced breathtaking sunsets over the Charles River that awed me each night as I walked home from work. With the gift of my first camera, I began taking photos around my Boston home and the Maine coast; and traveling the world in search of captivating images. I have taken several photography seminars and have completed color darkroom course work with the Boston Photo Collaborative and at the New England School of Photography. My photography reflects my fascination with the colors and patterns that surround us every day. I find inspiration in the early morning and late afternoon when the warm light creates rich colors in the natural and man-made worlds. The shadow of a white wicker chair on a red porch, a line of frosted windows glowing in the afternoon sun, or a fallen tree in the snow can all transform into fascinating subjects. I concentrate on natural light for my photographs, which bathes the subject in a soft, warm glow and enhances its colors and lines. Until my switch to digital photography, I recorded my images on film and printed them myself using traditional darkroom techniques. I hope that when others view my photographs, they will enjoy an enhanced awareness of the beautiful light and color in the everyday world that I learned to appreciate through photography.
