I make my home in Miami Beach, Florida, land of basketball stars, the bikini and the mojito.  Photography is my passion, and although nature has been my main interest in the past, I have lately developed an interest in anything and everything in my field of vision.

  The underlying theme of all my work is order and symmetry.  What I try to express through the lens is an elegant arrangement of   elements within the viewfinder.  I pay an inordinate amount of attention to light, especially available light, and I chase after the best sunrises, sunsets, and storms I can manage to attend.  I capture the image on a Canon SLR body with an assortment of lenses from 17mm wide-angle to 500mm telephoto.

The digital darkroom is an integral part of the creative process.   I have enjoyed the HDR function on my Canon 5D Mark III body that gives great color and detail to many of the images, especially those in the Funky Arizona Gallery.  I organize and optimize my images in Adobe Lightroom 5.0, Adobe Photoshop CS6 and occasional plug-ins like Photomatix Pro for HDR, Nik Color Efex Pro, and Topaz Adjust.
