About Me

I began taking photographs after buying a Canon rangerfinder camera as a soldier in Viet Nam. I didn't know what I was doing but kept snapping photos and learning a little bit at a time. Other than a couple college photography courses, I'm pretty much self-taught, although I learned a few things from working with some professionals. I think you can learn a lot just by seeing how others get great results. Sometimes good pictures are well planned and executed, and other times it's better to be just plain lucky. I've been able to learn how to process film and use darkroom techniques and that's been helpful even with all the advances in digital photography. I try to learn something each time I pick up a camera or look at others' work.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my photos.
