I've loved photography since I got my first camera 1971. This love affair has taken me from exhibiting my work at the M.H. deYoung Museum in San Francisco to the sidelines of NFL football games, from political conventions to natural disasters, and from from the darkroom into the exciting world of digital photography.
As a professional photojournalist I enjoyed getting to look “behind the curtain” at concerts, theatrical productions and the lives of the people I photographed. As a newspaper photo editor I enjoyed working with young photojournalists and launching them on their own careers. Now, as an instructor, I live to pass on my passion for photography, and to help students learn to see, and photograph, like professionals.
When I'm not teaching, I like to take extended bicycle tours on which, not surprisingly, I chronicle photographically.
