Painting with pixels in the Pacific Northwest. Thank you for visiting my profile.
I am an East Coast transplant to the Pacific Northwest, and I have degrees in art and law. I worked in catalog photography while an undergrad design student at Rutgers. Starting my collegiate career as an illustration major, I soon discovered painting and photography, ultimately graduating with a BA in Art & Design. In addition to my BA from Rutgers, I also studied at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NYC. I have also done a small amount of artist modeling.
Happily married for over 30 years, I make my living as an attorney, I consider myself a journeyman photographer, and my primary interest in photography is in making art and building my portfolio. I originally picked up the camera as a means for creating reference photos for paintings, until I fell in love with the photograph as art in its own right. My current interest in model photography is pairing my interest in long exposure waterfall images with outdoor nude modeling.
I am not a traditional photographer, per se; I am interested in drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed media, but I love the relative immediacy of photography in the digital age, and I use it primarily as a medium to document the beautiful, and in creating what I hope are beautiful images, to transcend the mundane and to reach for the sublime.
Being a visual artist, everything is ultimate geared towards the final image. I enjoy collaborating with models in the art-making process. We are all connected, and art enhances these connections.
