I photograph the landscapes of coastal Northern California. I emphasize the coast from Point Reyes National Seashore in Marin County, through coastal Sonoma County, to Westport in Mendocino County. This is a range of approximately 25 miles to 175 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge along California’s incredible Highway 1.
My goal is to capture a sense the beauty, serenity and wonderful light that we enjoy on the edge of the continent, away from urban congestion. Living full-time at The Sea Ranch, on the northern coast of Sonoma County, I have an opportunity to watch the daily and seasonal rhythms of the light, land and ocean, and I endeavor to impart a strong sense of this place in my images. One could spend a lifetime photographing this area and still have a long list of places yet to visit or re-visit.
Galleries. I’m currently featuring two major galleries. Gallery One contains more recent images of the coast in color. Gallery Two features images from the North Coast of California in monochrome. As my photography grows more graphic and somewhat abstract, I have a growing interest in “black & white” for my images. I began actively photographing the coast in 2007. With experience, my photography has continued to evolve. My photography from 2007 though 2010 is now less representative of my current work; I have removed most of those older images from my website. Most of the images on my site are now from 2011 through today.
Folios. I’m now producing folios of some of my work. Electronic portfolios (eFolios) are pdf files containing12-24 images focused on a single topic from the North Coast of California and are available for free download. Printed folios (pFolios) are collections of typically eight small prints, nicely packaged and presented. While I have long-emphasized electronic display of my work, it is a pleasure to be able to hand hold the physical print. See the Folios tab.
Recent (Blog). The Recent tab is my blog. I plan to use the blog to announce updates such as posting of new images. Too, I hope to periodically share some of what I have learned about photography.
