Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better. Andre Gide (1869 - 1951)

I grew up on the west coast of Scotland having been born in Toronto, Canada.  Those years were foundational  for me imprinting much of who I am today.  Late in my teens my family moved to Southern California which opened up unimaginable opportunities for me.  I graduated from San Diego State University and the University of Southern California and received a commission in the U.S. Air Force serving 23 years in many different States and countries.   After the Air Force, I worked for a while as a management consultant before moving into higher education as Director of Accounting for a major research university here in San Diego.

I got into photography to capture images of my kids in sports through their college years with digital cameras.   I now use both film and digital cameras.  

I love the physical characteristics of film.  I take the extra time and effort to make film work including development of black and white film, not because I have to; rather because I love to.

Prints of my images are available here on the website. All prints are processed by White House Custom Color.  I hope you can find something that captures your eye and has meaning for you.  I'm also available for special projects.
