my workshop students ask my about my specialty, I say that my specialty
is not specializing...because I photograph people, landscapes,
seascapes and wildlife--as well as taking pictures underwater and from
the air. I enjoy it all!
"For me, digital photography is a 50-50 deal: 50 percent image
capture, 50 percent digital darkroom work. Perhaps best of all, I enjoy
photographing strangers in strange lands."
