I've been taking photographs since I was 13 years old
when my father showed me how to use a Leica rangefinder
to copy artwork he produced as part of his advertising
business. I still use a Leica IIIc, an Exacta VXIIa, Nikon F2,
Olympus-Pen EES-2 35mm half-frame, Rolleiflex 2f, Crown-Graphic 4x5,
and a 1930s AGFA-ANSCO 8x10 field camera.
(Recently acquired a Leica M1).
Below are samples of photographs to illustrate a range of my
technical expertise. I prefer silver black and white.
