Fine Art Photography 





This fall I began pulling together a collection of old and new photos of buildings and views around the Rocky Mountain west.  I was hoping to evoke some emotion about part of life that I remember from growing up in the area that now seems to be fading into never never land of memories that young people find pathetic and laughable when anyone over 50 mentions.  I may still want things to be as they were when I was growing up,  but I know, as we all know, that things will never be that way again.  These photos are as close as I can get.

I hope you enjoy!

Spring, 2015

In early March, 2015, I attended the Fine Tuning the Expressive Black and White Print workshop With John Sexton and Anne Larsen in Carmel Valley CA.  What an incredible workshop! The instructors were incredible, and the participants were incredibly talented and motivated.  The days were long, but in the end, it was worth every moment.

I was able to take enough time to photograph on the way to the workshop, as well as on the return trip.  Below are some of the images I created.

Following this group of images, are other images created for different workshops.

I hope you enjoy!

Additional Portfolios



Finally, during the spring and summer of 2014, I was able to arrange my schedule to allow me to finally attend photography workshops again.  I have always enjoyed workshops.  Meeting the instructors and attendees.  Some of them become friends for life! 

One of the most important parts of good workshops is the portfolio critique.  Although sometimes difficult to endure, honest and frank criticism of your photographs is the best way to improve.  A lot of effort goes into choosing the images and then making the absolutely best prints I can make.

While I was doing this in preparation for the workshops this summer, it occured to me that I should share these images on the web site.
