I’ve been photographing commercially for more than 30 years; first with the view camera, with which nuance is obvious and detail is paramount.

I’ve been influenced by the symmetry and bold saturation of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian and the masterful black and white composition and lighting of TV cinematographer Emmett Bergholz. I’m still influenced, and at times awed, by contemporary work seen in Communication Arts.

Some say that photographers should specialize narrowly. But when, in every waking moment, another image appears in your mind’s eye, combined with an insatiable interest in most everything, I am compelled to create — no matter the subject.
