Looking upward at the four-story spiral staircase at Scotty's Castle in Death Valley National Park.
I have been a photographer for over 35 years, since the age of 9. I have studied with Ansel Adams, Jerry Uelsmann and Arthur Ollman who all shaped my vision and techniques in important ways. I have worked in the television industry in Hollywood for the last 30 years as an animator and designer; this has helped fine tune my skills as a photographer which is still a passionate hobby. I hope to be making images for the rest of my life.
