My experience as a photographer goes back to my childhood when my father, and avid amateur himself, put a Kodak Brownie box camera in my hands.  He showed me how to develop the Black & White film in a home lab and then enlarge, dodge and burn, and process the prints on Ilford paper.  Jump to to present where everything is digital and everyone has a camera on their phone.  Hopefully, some of those old B&W skills are still present in my photos.

Feel free to contact me for information regarding purchasing any of my prints, licensing an image, or commissioning an assignment. I love to shoot (and often do it for free), and I am always willing to listen to your creative thoughts and help you with your photographic needs from family photos, shots of Fido, or the new head shot for your social media site. If you need fun pics of your Ocean City vacation, let me know as I am frequently in that area on weekends.  You can reach me at:
