I'll be spending some time as this year unfolds scanning some old negatives. Many of these photographs represent the origins and beginnings of my serious foray into fine art photography so they have deep significant meaning to me. This portfolio will grow as the days, weeks and months pass so stop back often for updates.

Going old school with a scan of an 8x10 negative. Years ago I was give an 8x10 view camera so I just had to make some negatives. Nothing spectacular but a lot of fun.

This photograph was made one night while lugging the Hasselblad around on an oversized tripod. A few us were out that night having a lot of fun making photographs.
This photograph is of my daughter and was made quite a few years ago. It's homage to Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O'Keeffe. This is my interpretation of the photograph that Stieglitz made.
This photograph is titled "Tied" and was made during my first photography workshop in Maine in 2003. I consider it to be one of many that were made that week that represent the first building blocks in the foundation of my serious foray into photography
The photograph shown here is titled “First Day” and is the representative picture from my first photography workshop in Maine in 2003. The first assignment for the week on the first morning was to shoot a roll of film (36 exposures) in our rooms before going out of the room. That’s right, 35mm film and no screen on the back of the camera. A huge challenge for the novice that I was at the time. I pushed forward and completed the assignment. The photograph you see here came from that roll of film and still holds deep meaning for me.
