I often photograph from a sense of wonder at the world around me. Contemplation, joy and energy are elements but the magic of revealing light takes my breath away.
Minor White was my first teacher, classic black and white view camera, the Zone System. He was an amazing and inspiring teacher of much more than photography.
Now the digital darkroom has allowed me to push in new directions, leave a comfort zone, explore. I am as excited about making images as ever in my life.
To paraphrase Robert Frost, I think a good photograph can begin with excitement and end with wisdom.
