I use methods and techniques from both analog and digital that pay respect to the art’s great past.

Biography
I have spent many hours and traveled many miles honing my talents as a visual artist specializing in fine arts, and commercial photography. Born into a farm family in southern New Castle County, near Clayton, Delaware. In my early years I spent much of my time working on the farm and involved with various 4-H projects and activities. Earning a BFA in Fine Arts from the University of Delaware, where I studied under photographers John Weiss, Priscilla Smith and Peter Croydon. I have developed my own style and vision while also learning from such notable photographers as Jay Maisel, Robert Llewellyn, & Arthur Meyerson.

I have had a photo career best described as eclectic, Working in such photographic fields as wildlife and travel photography, portraiture, commercial and sports photography, photojournalism, and digital photo retouching. My client list includes Fila shoes, Budweiser and Mercedes Benz. My work has been published and exhibited to great acclaim, and has received multiple awards and honors. My artwork has found it’s way to many private collectors and patrons around the world.

When asked what my favorite thing about being an artist is, I just smile and say, "The reaction and connection the viewer has to my artwork."

Previously I’ve been an adjunct faculty member at Cecil College in North East, Maryland and currently an adjunct instructor at the Visual Communications program at Delaware Technical Community College in Dover, Delaware. I have taught a range of subjects including; digital imaging, studio photography, nature and wildlife and travel photography. Many of his students have gone on to be award winning artists themselves.

Artist Statement
My involvement in fine art photography began with my formal art education. I was mentored by a protégé of Minor White and was introduced to the concepts of equivalents. Influenced by that teaching, my work is conceptually based, relying heavily on the use of found locations, subjects and objects that are then presented as equivalents. It is designed to empathetically impart thoughts and emotions, and to convey the viewer into their subconscious awareness.

Working directly in reaction to the surrounding environment and visual everyday occurrences is the starting point of my visual exploration that continues to the desired impression is captured in frame. Often these framed instances would go unnoticed in their original context and take on a minimalist or abstract quality. Once the process of photographing is concluded, I then work using various methods to hone the color, shapes and textures of the final image. Once complete the image is transferred, printed or engraved on to various substrates of paper, wood and metals.
