Taking a portrait in Krong Buc, Vietnam

He who binds himself to a joy

Does the winged life destroy

He who kisses the joy as it flies

Lives in Eternity's sunrise

William Blake

I was born in New York and have lived in Hong Kong, England, and for the past eighteen years the Bay Area in California.  

Working with images has been an offshoot of my work as an advertising copywriter, high school English and Drama teacher, and sports coach. Whether it was words and images laid out on a page, actors moving in and out of light on a stage, or players competing on a field play, I was always drawn to style and energy when and where I found it.  As a visual artist, I tend to find my Muse in nature and human expression. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In terms of technique,  I suppose I work most on my attention, and try to stay alert enough to know when something good might be happening or about to happen. That way the eye and the camera (usually a Sony a6100) stand a chance of kissing those joys before they fly away.

 

Here's hoping you enjoy the images.
