I’ve been photographing the world since I received my first Kodak Instamatic at the age of 7. My father gave me my first SLR (my beloved Konica T-3) when I started taking darkroom classes as a teenager at the Barnsdall Art Center in Hollywood CA, where I learned how to develop and print my own work. After a lull of nearly 10 years I went back to working in the darkroom after an inspiring photography workshop in the west of Ireland in October, 2001. Now I shoot mostly with a Nikon F100 and a Mamiya 645Pro for medium format work. I also have two Holgas that I like to play with. Recently I went down the polaroid path and use the polaroid back on my Mamiya or a Polaroid Spectra Pro.
