Darkroom Origins: Before we had fancy digital cameras and smartphones, photography started with something called a "camera obscura." It's like the great-grandparent of today's cameras. People would go into a dark room with a tiny hole in one wall, and light would pass through that hole, projecting an upside-down image on the opposite wall. My darkroom is a bit more modern than that, however, it still feels like I take a step back in time when I watch prints appear seconds after I place them in a tray and I absolutely love it!
Level II Historical Photographic Documenation

Black and White
I studied black and white landscape photography at the Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center in Abiquiu, New Mexico, starting in 1997, where I found my true passion and a life-long love for the art of landscape photography.
