My passion for B&W photography began years ago in a school darkroom. The first time I watched my print magically appear in the developer tray I was hooked. Captivated by the chemical process before me I felt an immediate sense of empowerment. I ended up majoring in photography in college and studied the work of master photographers Minor White, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Paul Strand and Imogen Cunningham, among others. I gained an appreciation not only for the photographs they made but also for the craftsmanship of their prints. The image tonality, paper surface and archival properties were an object of art in themselves. My appreciation for the fine art print led me to start shooting with large format view cameras and contact printing on silver and platinum-based papers.

In the early to mid 1990’s, digital photographic imaging was still in its infancy and I embraced the new technologies with open arms. I was fascinated by the unbelievable control that was suddenly possible. A digital workflow consists of making the exposure (or exposures), post-processing using image editing software, then most often exporting the image to an online portfolio or website. While the internet has become an invaluable medium for sharing your work with others all over the world, sadly it seems that the fine art photographic print has lost its place as an integral part of the digital photographic process…
