Biography

Photography is more than holding light.
It is life.
I began shooting on 35mm film when I was 13 and received my first camera at 15.
Photography has been my anchor and wings.
It has been with me through joy, grief, life and death, and I owe my truest self to what I ask my camera to seize on my behalf.

Cheshire Falconry, Northwich, Cheshire, England. I was lucky enough to be able to handle this gorgeous captive American golden eagle and he sat calmly while I took his photograph outside on an overcast afternoon. Nikon Df; Nikon 75-300 f/4.5-5.6. Exposure: 1/500 sec; f/5.6; ISO 400.

Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania. The main challenge was finding a group of actors who weren't obscured by other photographers or tourists in this reenactment of General Washington and his troops crossing the Delaware River on Christmas of 1776. Contrary to history, it was a sunny, crisp day without snow on the ground. I chose not to add anything that wasn't there and concentrate on changing daylight into moonlight. Nikon Df; Nikon 75-300 f/4.5-5.6. Exposure: 1/500 sec; f/5.6; ISO 160.

Cypress, California. There were no challenges taking this shot and it was only after viewing it on my iMac that I saw the head of a raven inside the large water drop! I took a while to bring out the different textures a macro lens gives and was delighted to see a tiny bug just entering the right-hand frame. Nature is magical! Nikon 990 @14.6mm. Exposure: 1/115 sec; f/4.4; ISO 100.

Dana Point, California. It was easy to follow the surfer but took awhile in post-processing to recreate the color and mood of what I saw. Canon PowerShot G9. Exposure: 1/500 sec; f/5.6; ISO 100.

Paris, France. I remember trying not to jump into the fountain to cool off in this over 100-degree August heat and hoping I'd nailed the exposure (shot on film in August 1997). Nikon F4; Nikon 75-300 f/4.5-5.6. Exposure: Fuji Velvia 100; 1/60 sec; f/4.5; ISO 100.
