Chronology

 
1939 Born, Houston, Texas
   
1989 Early on in my photographic studies I was inspired to use the view camera. A friend gave me his old 4x5 Graphlex with a strange lens to get started...as I set up on my porch one day at my home in Colorado, another friend, a learned photographer stopped by...he asked if I would like for him to show me how to use the 4x5 camera...this brief lesson began my life as a photographic artist. The man who gave me the first lesson was John Sexton.
   
1993 My view camera at this point is an 8x10... It's a Phillips camera with various vintage lenses...my studies continue in the form of workshops to study vintage processes. Master photographers like Ray McSavanney,Ruth Bernhard, Keith Carter, John Coffer guide me technically and spiritually.
