Artist ID: 2433

I have heard that an image is not a photograph until it is printed. In-camera composition and technical skills are only the beginning. The photographic image is not complete until it has been printed and the printing of an image is limitless due to the many printing processes available. My emphasis is on the image interpretations that can be obtained by photographic printing processes.

As my daughter says, "he always has at least 2 cameras with him." Since 1979 I have been shooting and printing my photos. I attended the Art institute of Atlanta studying photography but did not finish the program. My time at AIA did instill a lifelong passion for photography, with film, then digital, and now both. Upon my retirement from a federal government agency in 2011, I renewed my interest in film photography and printing. Also since 2011, I have researched and replicated several photographic printing processes from the mid 1800’s to the present. These include but not limited to; cyanotypes, gum/dichromate/watercolor prints, gumoil prints, screen-printing, pigment inkjet prints, lenticular inkjet prints, and inkjet image transfers. From camera to print, all of my workflows contain both analog and digital components. I am in great debt to all who have shared online what they know and hope anyone who views my work will deem my prints as good craftsmanship and appreciate how I view the world around me.
