My photography is centered on the landscapes of coastal Sonoma, Mendocino and Marin Counties, California. 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.
Gallery Updates – Spring 2013. The galleries have been fairly static since I first opened this WordPress-based site in May 2011. My photography has continued to evolve so a Spring 2013 project is to update the image galleries. Gallery One contains more recent work in color. Six sub-galleries are now open with more to join in the coming weeks. The wonderfully graphic sandstone that forms our ocean bluffs is the subject of three of those six sub-galleries. 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 currently have just a single sub-gallery but will add more over time. Gallery NorCal is my “classic” gallery that will shrink in size as newer work is added to Galleries One and Two. I plan to remove Gallery NorCal completely by the time I complete my Spring update.
EFOLIOs. I’ve added electronic portfolios (eFolios) of my work to the website. These pdf files contain 12-24 images focused on a single topic from the North Coast of California and are available for free download to registered members of the website. See the “EFOLIOS” tab.
I plan to use the weblog to announce updates such as posting of new images. Too, I hope to periodically share some of what I have learned about photography via the blog.
