Rustic artistry and classic sophistication is attained through black and white photography. Here, such things as light, shadow, texture, wood grain, and wrinkles ("character lines") are featured. The color photography embraces subtle and soothing earth tones, while the majority of the time the color photography explodes with vibrant color and energy! My experiences and high level of formal education afford me with a comprehensive understanding of the photographic subjects. Strong heartfelt appreciation is held for the subject areas of the photography . . . and this shines through in the subjects, composition and quality of the photography!
