I am a photographer and educator, currently based in Seattle, Washington. I knew I was hooked on photography when I took my first class in 1978 making silver prints and shooting film and learning all things photography. Over thirty-five years later and I am a photo-omnivore, devouring all types of photograph, in love with process, cameras, making images.
After receiving a MFA in Photography from Pratt Institute in 1985, I worked as an editorial photographer. Given a chance to teach a class at ICP, I discovered teaching was a much better way to earn a living than taking photographs for other people. Since 1995, I have taught photography part or full-time, in a variety of venues, from International Center of Photography in NYC to University of Puget Sound and of course Photographic Center NW in Seattle. Currently I teach digital and film photography to about 200 high school students a year.
I continue to work in my studio in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle. I look forward to no longer teaching full time and sorting, printing, organzing, 35 years of work and making new work. The Pinhole Project, began in 2013 and continues with over 3000 images. The Pinhole Project has it’s own website. Ask for a camera and make a long exposure pinhole! Be a part of the project!
Today, I am primarily a pinhole photographer working with a 4 x 5 pinhole camera on color film. I do many types of pinhole which you can see on other parts of this website. I have been involved with pinhole photography in some form for about 25 years. Some of my recent landscape work with the 4 x 5 Pinhole was shown at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art this past summer. The Nighttime Portfolios: Images of Georgetown, continue slowly. I am thrilled to have printed several images from this portfolio, in an edition this past summer and exhibited 10 images in a show titled Urban in Pioneer Square at Gallery 110. My studio is home to over thirty years of photographic images, all for sale. If you would like to arrange a studio visit, please contact me at the email below.
