I have been interested in photography since I was fourteen when I used my mom’s film camera to take my first pictures. I took a photography class in high school and learned how to shoot, develop and print black and white 35mm film.

I bought my first 35mm film camera when I was sixteen. In college, I studied photography where I learned how to use medium format and 4×5 view film cameras. I also worked part time in several photography labs. I loved working in the darkroom and could work twelve hours straight without getting tired. I still enjoy creating something from nothing, whether it is in the darkroom or on the computer.

I started using digital cameras about twenty years ago. I feel that the digital darkroom is more fun than a film darkroom. You can do things with digital negatives that you could never do with film.

I don’t think I have a niche or style that is unique and tied to one thing. I consider myself a Fine Art Photographer who has a passion to make photographs that capture what I see before me in nature, architecture, transportation and abstract subject matter.

My images are done with a creative purpose just like a painter. Like all artists, my work is personal and is created for my enjoyment based on my vision. I am a very visual person. Everything I see is a photograph that inspires me.

I am moved by design, whether it is natural or man-made. I love to look at flowers up close and see their color, lines and details. I love to look at a buildings’ angles and colors and observe how light plays on them. I look at the light, shadows and shapes of the object or scene. I look at the entire object or scene and then I look at parts of it until I find something that catches my eye.

I don’t force an object or scene to produce an image. Sometimes I will just start taking pictures at different angles and distances. Sometimes I won’t see anything until I process the image. My images are like time capsules. They capture a moment in time that will not happen again.

I think a lot of people miss those moments when nature is at its best. They miss the beauty that surrounds us because they are moving too fast. I want my work to show people what they missed. I want them to be touched by the wonder and beauty that is around us.

  1. Robert certainly can express a feeling through the pictures shown here that make you reflect on what goes on or did go on behind them. I have many of his pictures on my walls of flowers, statues, buildings, landmarks. I’m very lucky to have them, but then I’m lucky to have him as well, he’s my husband!
