As a teenager I started my photography journey with a darkroom in my parents basement which I inherited from my brother. The first thing I did when we bought our house was to build a darkroom in the basement.
Today I am 100% digital in color and black and white (my preferred medium)
I have taken courses and workshops at Photoworks at Glen Echo, and with
Freeman Patterson and Andre Gallant in New Brunswick, Canada.
