I’m an Iowa native and former newspaper photographer. Now I shoot for fun.
After my departure from the news industry in 2018, I experimented with different styles of shooting. In February of 2020, I assigned myself a personal 28-day black and white shooting challenge. I loved it! I’ve been shooting mostly B&W ever since.
I’m finding I enjoy simplicity. I love the simplicity of black and white. I admire work by other photographers that feature simple but strong compositions that make good use of lines, shapes and light. I feel happiest when I can incorporate that into my own photographs. I also like keeping my gear simple. I currently do all of my photography with a compact camera with a fixed 35mm equivalent lens.
I may still shoot an occasional color photograph. And I’m sure my shooting style will continue to evolve and change. But for now I enjoy exploring my world in B&W.
Thanks for visiting!
