When it comes to my photography, it is hard to stay away from a few things.... black and white, large format film & wet plate collodion, and still life photography.Read More
This July 15th & 16th I return to the Midsummer Festival of the Arts at John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Stop by booth 78 on Wisconsin Avenue to see my new color landscape photography!
Perhaps you caught me during mid redesign of Interrobang! I was getting bored with the old look, and decided to start anew with a fresher look with more of a focus on my photography. Anyone who has followed my work and this website for the past two decades will know that I'm often redesigning it.
Right now I'm in the process of trying out a couple new designs to see which works best for my new ideas for the site. If you are checking my site for something specific and don't see it, feel free to contact me, or just check back in a few days.
During the open studio tours I normally don't try to work on anything since I find it hard to be creative while stopping to talk with studio visitors. But during yesterday's open studio I was able to work on one of my abstract collages since it turned out to be a quiet day.Read More
Don't miss the 7th Annual Get Behind the Arts Studio tour in Racine and Kenosha Wisconsin!Read More
I must be having a burst of creativity because I seem to be making photography, woodworking, and my abstract collages almost simultaneously.
I finally got around to developing a roll of film from my old Agfa medium format camera. The lens is flipped in this one and that is what is producing the distorted edge effects.Read More
Today I went back to using my 8x10 camera for test shots of this still life series I'm starting to work on. I'm trying X-ray film, mainly because it is more affordable than "real" B&W 8x10 film, and because I have a box on hand.Read More
I'm putting my photo workshops on hold for the time being since my schedule with art festivals is up in the air at the moment. Once I know which art festivals I'll be attending this year I can take another look at offering photo workshops again.
As I venture into the world of color I feel it is important to keep my vision of dreams. With my black and white work it often evokes a dream or mysterious quality for viewers. It is always wonderful to hear customers share the stories they get from one of my photographs. Black and white itself separates most of us from reality since most of us see the world around us in color. My work with wet plate collodion, gelatin dry plate, salt prints and cyanotype print take it a step further.Read More
