Your Bio

Photographic Performance Magic...

I graduated photography school in 1970 where I specialized in applied and industrial photography using large format camera's. As a commercial photographer my work involved architectural, product and fashion photography.

The strong technical background that made up my photographic training has given me skills and insights that add to my gift of having an 'eye' and a passion for imagery.

As my personal interests later changed to popular "art" photography I combined my other loves of people, wines and music performance and now currently do mostly social event and concert photography. Performance and events are not static frozen slices in time but live their life in a timeline with emotion and I try to capture that energy so that the image has some of what was felt as well as what was seen... This is the difference between a snap-shot and a true photographic image.

Buying Photo

 

 Buying Photo's & Gifts;   

If you wish to purchase a photo for personal use, there are various options once you add it to the shopping cart. In addition to a print of almost any size, you can order a wide variety of gifts with that photo imprinted. You can also download a digital file of that image for your own personal use as a screen saver, to illustrate your digital journal or a non-commercial website, or to make prints for yourself or to give as gifts. Watermarks will not appear on prints or gits ordered through SmugMug.

My recommendation is to select Lustre when ordering prints. Lustre is a premium finish on a heavier paper. It offers the vibrant colors of glossy with the fingerprint-resistant finish of matte, printed on Kodak Supra Endura Paper. There are also options to have my images as Mounted or Rolled Canvas Prints. Printed on heavy duty PremierArt Water Resistant Canvas, then finished with a dry lamination process that is UV and water resistant. There are many more distinctive and unusual gift options available as well. Watermarks will not appear on prints ordered through SmugMug.
Rest assured your sale is in safe hands... SmugMug securely handles your charge card transaction, prints and ships your items from a professional lab renowned for color accuracy, print quality and consistency. If you are unhappy with your prints or gifts, SmugMug will reprint or refund your order, whichever you prefer. Just email help@smugmug.com within 30 days of receiving your order.
