**Getty Images** Photographer


I am very grateful that you have chosen to visit my gallery. I hope you get as much enjoyment from viewing my work as I find creating it.

The process I am using is somewhat novel & cutting-edge, with digital technology replacing not only the darkroom, but the camera as well. I am creating my images with a flatbed scanner, which offers interesting opportunities.

Unlike a traditional camera, a flatbed scanner captures an image by slowly moving both the light and the lens across the subject essentially lighting and photographing it from multiple angles in one long exposure.
This produces a single image stitched together from thousands of tiny slivers, to which I then make endless, minute adjustments. Each photograph takes between 20-40 hours to make.
The results are incredible high resolution prints of the best quality availale in today's art market, which can be printed as wide as sixty inches, and are made with archival inks or pigments on rag paper, which gives them an inky, matte surface and a dimensional feel.

I am a full time artist and have pursued the visual arts as a photographer for many years specializing in large format fine art photography.
The resulting images are the fusion of my love for food, nature and art and can be seen & purchased in this gallery.

My images have been shown in numerous galleries, both nationally and internationally. I have published images in calendars and magazines and my work resides in many private collections, including the Sierra Club headquarters in San Francisco and the Nikon Gallery in New York City.

For consignment work (Restaurants, Offices, Hospitals) or any questions and requests about my art please contact me :
