I have loved photography since my early teens. My initial efforts with
black and white film with a double lens reflex camera evolved into high
saturation color slide work, and more recently, into the realm of digital imagery.
After a lifetime of creating photos I have recently been teaching photography and
have written a book, From Point and Shoot to Brilliant Photography.
My eye looks for the light, and the light is only perfect for a very short time.
My career as an HIV/AIDS physician, my home in the
Colorado Rockies, my summers in the British Columbian coastal waters, and my global
adventures on the roads less traveled, have all brought me to unique photographic moments.
There is a moment when we as humans behold incredible beauty in nature, the deep
light in another's eyes or the excitement of the wild things, a moment when we
feel a special stirring deep in our hearts. If an image gives its viewer this
kind of feeling, the inner experience of the actual moment, then it is a successful image.
May you feel this "spirit" in my work.
