In the exuberance of youth, I was an equipment junkie so weighted down with gear and choice that I often missed the shot, or the experience. I still crave good tools/toys, but I now get more out of less.
Two years in the Rocky Mountains at the Banff School of Fine Arts opened my eyes to this basic truth: equipment and processes are the tools, the art of painting with light is about seeing.
Through my passion for the back roads and forgotten places I am drawn to these reflections of the past and the flotsam of discarded dreams.
I travel light. My 'big' camera is the original FujiFilm X100. The X series reintroduced the joy of the fixed lens camera and the perfect union of lens to sensor. The 35mm equivalent lens simplifies the choices to move or crop. The unobtrusive nature of this classic 'rangefinder' camera and the crisp images it delivers, gives me the confidence to get close without compromising the moment.
My other camera is the iPhone, which, coupled with terrific apps, continues to amaze me. Most of the images on the blog and the banners are 'in camera' iphoneography.
