My interest in photography began with a gift from my grandmother–a Kodak 126 Instamatic.  A little block of wood replaced the missing shutter release, but it worked like a charm.  I used that camera to record some of my childhood near Athens, Greece, where I first came to enjoy the process of photographing exotic locales.


Years later, I traded the Instamatic’s simplicity for the versatility of a 35mm SLR, and I was hooked.  I learned the trade from the inside out, working for over thirteen years at many positions in the photofinishing industry.  Eventually, I left to spend more time shooting, both commercially and  for my own enjoyment while traveling around North America and Europe.


Aside from a lifelong personal interest in the subject, I also have an associate’s degree in photography.  My work in the photofinishing industry, which started in Gainesville, Florida, in  1984, includes managing and working in consumer and pro photo labs and portrait studios.  I left lab work behind in 1998 and started pursuing commercial photography.  Since 2000, I have been the photographer and graphic designer for Christian Caine, a jewelry designer and manufacturer located in Shepherdstown, WV.


After many trips to the southwest, I moved to Durango in the fall of 2007 where I continue to explore and record the region’s scenic splendor, using my photography as a tool for learning about its unique cultural and natural qualities.
