I live in Cardiff by the Sea, California. My dad taught me to use a film camera when I was in high school. I lost interest in photography when I moved away from home and couldn’t use his nice cameras any more. Digital photography left me cold, except for family photos. A few years ago I took up printmaking (old school style, lithography and intaglio). Someone suggested I try a darkroom photography class and I fell in love again. I find a lot of crossover in the way I see and create images in the two media. I own about 10 cameras but only regularly use a few. I like to shoot scenery and environments, especially when I travel. Occasionally I do some street style photography. I love experimenting with different films, cross processing, film souping, the crazier the better! I am very happy to have found this great community of like minded people.
