Artist in Residence Emeritus
I have been a photographer of the natural world since 1965 when my father showed me his darkroom when on shore leave from Vietnam. I purchased a Minolta SRT 101 where I began my journey in the vein of Ansel Adams and Fred Picker to use the zone system for creating perfect black and white photographs. I currently shoot with 4x5 cameras in the Pacific Northwest.
Like my father before me, I passed on my artistic abilities to my son when he was a young boy in an old school apprentice family practice.
In my spare time, I am an avid Portland Timbers fan, and one of the mythical twenty. I enjoy bonsai gardening, tending to my orchids, and traveling with my wife.
