About me

 

I'm a lifelong photography lover who began developing my own black and white SLR photographs in the 1970s using a manual Canon FTb and, later, a Canon F-1, while pursuing a career in science, mathematics, and the military.

 

I re-entered photography several years ago and switched to digital SLRs and image processing.  This opened up new paths of composition for my photographs.   My current equipment includes a Sony A7 Mark II with a variety of Sony and Canon lenses, as well as a Sony NEX 5R for travel photography, and cell phone cameras for impromptu shots.  I'm a member of the Northern Virginia Photographic Society and the East End Art Guild in Puerto Rico.

 

I've participated in photography workshops, have had photographs published in local magazines in Virginia, and have exhibited in Humacao, Puerto Rico and in Hood River, Oregon.  One of my photographs was nominated for a people's choice award and won best in show for landscapes at Nature Visions Photo Expo 2016 at the George Mason University Performing Arts Center in Virginia.   I'm currently working on a project to exhibit photographs I took in 1973 documenting life in parts of Kurdistan.

 

I enjoy recording God's masterpieces by photographing landscapes from various parts of the United States and Europe, along with occasional candid street subjects.  Sailing has been a hobby, so I also have that as a subject.

 

Originally from Puerto Rico, I've enjoyed returning to capture its beauty over the last decade.

 

My photos are not for sale.  However, if you absolutely must have one of them, I'm flattered, and you can message me for arrangements.
