Welcome to the photography section of the site.

Content is being organized for future posting, but for now, only the portfolios are available; you can view them via the main menu.

In the future, expect additional portfolios to show up, as well as various themed galleries in different genres or areas of subject matter. The portfolios essentially host my best work; the galleries, not quite excellent but still great work that I’ve decided is worth keeping. Some of the galleries will be traditional ones (try landscape, floral, garden, etc.) and others will be themed projects (the Gloom and Relics galleries were featured on the old webpage, and will be returning). Additionally I plan to blog regularly with new material; anything I decide is good to great will show up in the blog feed. In addition craft essays and tutorials will show up collected on a separate page.

Subject matter, for me, is usually fine arts style photography. I flirt with journalism occasionally so that may happen down the road, but expect a lot of nature photos, a lot of night photos, and plenty of urban and monochrome (usually black and white) work. I have every intention of dipping into portrait photography as well, and I enjoy making photo edits with Photoshop filters. In other words I haven’t hedged myself into any one area unless that area is fine arts; I’ve heard and I’m willing to believe this is remarkably bad business strategy, but the sad reality is I’m self-taught and what I taught myself was artistic photography.

The blog will resume shortly; I intend to stick to a schedule once the dust settles and everything’s collected. I do have to go through ten years of images and sort a large chunk of them before I can get most of my stuff posted.

Again, welcome to the site and the blog; there’s a lot of old material to be posted, and I have every intention of making plenty of new material as well as time rolls on.
