My love of photography goes back to when I was ten years old. I was given my first basic camera, and I took as many pictures as I could afford to get printed. Over the many years, I have studied, practiced, traveled the world, and refined my work.
When in Australia, I worked with weddings and portraiture. Landscape, nature and urban was purely for pleasure. Since coming to California in 1993, I have sold prints and been included in exhibitions. One of these was "Distinctive Artists of Southern California", a four-month display at LAX by LA Department of Cultural Affairs (click to view).
A few years back, I focused on photographing interiors, utilizing non-intrusive techniques with available light only. Click here for an example of a newly renovated hotel, and here for an example of a classic cinema.
This year, I have been experimenting with the iPhone 5 as a serious tool for photographic artists. In fact, I won an Honorable Mention for an iPhone 16x20 print, in the Emerging Focus Summer Sessions Competition in Los Angeles, and was a presenter as a finalist, talking about my explorations on the iPhone.
Several years back, I wrote articles for Photo Marketing Association, was featured in an InFlight promotion, presented to a large consumer audiences at Photo Expo 2010 on Photographic Art, and Digital Storytelling, and created video material on photography for PMAITV. I was in three 10-min TV spots on G4 Tech TV with Leo Laporte, interviewed on Shutterbug Radio, and had several interviews on photography on Sirius Radio.
I publish a video podcast which now has thousands of subscribers. The theme is simplifying creative techniques and demystifying digital photography, so that creating satisfying imagery is within reach for anyone. Last year, Apple featured my iTunes photography podcast in a worldwide promotion for iTunes, called "Learn From the Pros".
