Capturing a specific moment in time and rendering it with depth, movement and emotion on a 2 dimensional surface has fascinated me for a long time. Film is still the main and preferred medium of expression although digital images are now running a strong second. For the most part I am self taught having had little success in the formal education process, although I did benefit greatly from studying the Zone System and working with large format cameras in the early '70's. Black and white images are by far my favorite and I've been strongly influenced by the work of Cartier-Bresson, Boubat, Doisneau, Edward Weston, Adsel Adams and others.
