Welcome to my random visual musings. I’ll be posting up new and old work, random shots and projects that may not make it to my website that interest me.
About Me: I got started in photography by joining the U.S. Navy in March of 1994 to be a Navy Photographer. I went into the recruiter’s office and said, here’s the deal. Get me the photography job or that’s it. I don’t want to do anything else in the Navy. Call me if it comes up. Well…three months later they called, and I left for bootcamp in Orlando, FL two weeks later. After bootcamp, I was sent to the Defense Photography School in Pensacola, FL. I was given my choice of orders and chose Misawa, Japan as my first duty station. I had three wonderful years in Japan. Many of those experiences I’m going to share with you here, but there’s sooo much scanning I have to do. I shot everything on film or chrome then, so that’s one of my projects. As I get the work scanned in, I’ll share it here.
At the end of my tour in Japan, they said I could do two more years in Japan, or sign for another year and a half and go to Hawaii. There really was no choice but to go to Hawaii for three years. Another amazing time, once more documented on film(scanning, scanning, scanning)…so there will be more to come from this period as well.
So then a friend of mine convinced me to come to New York and go be a starving artist there. I figured that was a good a place as any to start the starving process, so I packed my bags I went to NYC. Eight years and a bunch of ramen noodles later, I’ve survived and started a nice photography business here in NY. So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and taking a glimpse through my lens.
