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.
I‘m increasingly turning to digital and often shoot with my Nikon Z7 and my Ricoh GR iii.
Prints of my images are available to buy here on SmugMug. I hope you can find something that captures your eye and has meaning for you. I'm also available for special projects.
