Bio

Photography has been a longtime passion and sometimes vocation. From 2004-2015 my primary interest was photographing ghost towns, junkyards, and modern ruins by the light of the moon. I taught night photography, Photoshop, and Lightroom classes at colleges and workshops during much of this time. I've also enjoyed shooting 360º panoramas.

As of 2017, I'm only occasionally participating in the presentation layer of photography as follows:

  • Stay tuned to the blog for intermittent ramblings and images..
  • View a weird and wonderful collection of photos on Tumblr.
  • See links about cars, film, music, & photography on Twitter.
  • Discover books, including photography books, on Goodreads.
