Clients asked me to capture people, places, feelings, power, poetry, and joys: I was a self-employed professional photographer twice, for a total of about 37 years. Since moving to Seattle in early 2017 my work has been personal only.
First stint was almost all Boston: photojournalism, advertising, corporate, and commercial work. In 1984 I built a studio which opened up new image options. in 1990 brought a few broader marketing communications projects including writing and design responsibilities.
Consulting to digital photography companies followed: digital was moving to supplant analog film capture. Companies needed to better understand shifting futures. How to navigate a fast-changing-now-digital-photography market? Spoke at Seybold and other industry venues, sized new markets, and wrote case studies to illustrate market shifts.
Held Marketing Communications and Business Development positions in software supply-chain services, digital asset management, and short-run database-driven printing startups in the later 90's.
In a sharp turn off this track, I dove into public school teaching in 2000 while earning a Master of Education degree at Cambridge College. Our family moved to Hawaii's Big Island in 2004 where I taught several different class levels in my small rural town’s public elementary school.
I reentered professional photography in 2010.
Here we are in wonderful Seattle, across busy Eliot Bay harbor from a downtown cityscape. Puget Sound views and the Salish Sea a step away from the house. Night walks with Jack, our dog, through our surrounding streets were full of the little views seen here on the site as "One Dog Night". Satisfying exercise for Jack and eye.
