interest in photography began quite by accident. When on vacation
in St. Maarteen, I borrowed my wife's camera to take a few photographs.
I thought that one of them was quite good (Years later I realized
how mediocre it was). When we arrived home I purchased a camera and
began to photograph the Chicago area and enrolled in classes on camera
technique and, most importantly, on the principles of good composition.
I discovered an ability I didn't realize I had and photography
evolved into a passionate and all-consuming hobby.
favorite photographic subjects are scenery and old, weathered buildings.
I attempt to isolate the subject and eliminate anything extraneous
that does not add to the image. Since a photograph depends on the
relationship of the subject to light, I often scout out an area
in order to determine the proper time of day to photograph that
particular subject. When I see an image that gives me an adrenaline
surge, I know that I'll be able to produce a good photograph.
I hope my photographs convey to you the same excitement they inspire
