Since most of what I shoot is spure of the moment I have few planned out images. What I do have is mostly large format and have not had the funds to get those scanned. SomedayI will. Here is one 35mm image I took back in college studying photography. I general take a photojournalistic approach to my work. I will see what else I can find. I have been heavily influenced by Margaret Bourke-Wright and German Expresionist Films, so as with this image I like using high contrast with my images. When I get my Expresionism Series from Montauk point/Camp Hero scanned I will post a few.

I can't say an artistic eye made this shot- I was standing on top of my Jeep getting ready to shoot my buddy's, looked down at my camera and saw this in the LCD. I was merely the button pusher here!

White Bark Overlook, at the end of Dusy/Ershim trail.


A marathon weekend trip to Moab- in 2 days we drove back-n-forth and wheeled 5 trails. Of course we were on the trail from dawn to dusk so great sunset photo opportunities presented themselves!

I see this perspective a lot and have taken many pictures of them. This is one from Baja that takes me back instantly...maybe not the best quality but they usually turn out really neat...

I have weighed in a few marlin at the end of that pier. I remember when we pulled in and had our marlin flag flying on the outrigger the harbor master would fire off a cannon and soon the bars at Avalon would empty and everyone would come down to see the fish weighed in. Been many years since I brought one in there. We are talking the 1960's then. Crewed on a swordfish boat in mid 60's with Hap Jacobs( Jacobs Surfboards, Hermosa Beach) and we stuck a number of broad bills off Avalon and around Catalina. Came close twice to a bad ending. Great memories i
