Not many people can claim their career was inspired by something they saw in the bathroom!
My passion for photography was discovered in my mom’s makeshift darkroom that she set up in the family bathroom when I was only 5 years old.
That discovery helped lead me towards a career that has lasted more than two decades and has taken me around the world.
In 2004, and facing career burnout due to changes in the photography industry, I decided to take a 4x5 film camera on our family vacation to Yosemite. The combination of stunning scenery and the old-school approach to photography re-ignited my passion for the craft that had somehow fizzled in the digital era. For some reason, the slow and contemplative workflow needed to operate one of these archaic cameras was exactly what I needed.
This book is a small sample of some of the photographs I have created with my trusty 4x5 camera and B&W film.
