Medium Format pinhole and toy cameras.
120 film, primarily in monochrome, is the medium.
Editing or manipulation of the images, post-production, is minimal. Use of natural early morning or evening light, plastic lens, warped film planes and long exposures create the effects in-camera.
I was raised in the woods. My childhood was spent exploring the forests around my home. I divided my childhood between two vastly different areas; from the deep woods in Maine to the high country in Montana-I've long had an affinity for the wild places.
My love affair with photography also started at a young age. One of the first cameras I had was a toy "Holga". My mother would send me out into the woods with it, and I would bring back rolls of film-little snapshots of my woodland exploits. As I grew so did my appreciation for both nature and the craft of photography. The journey through various techniques, schooling, dark room and digital has led me right back to where I started: with the Holga.
This appreciation manifests itself now in my predominantly monochromatic images of figures silently interacting with their surroundings. Quiet images of solitude or dreamlike vistas presented with a mood and quality that speak to the timelessness of these moments.
