Artist Statement "How I Work" The Outdoor Studio I prefer a photo journalistic approach to imagery rather than a controlled studio. I live and work in a beautiful part of the country, and I love to utilize this fortunate piece of my life in all of my work. It's Black And White With Me I show and print in black-and-white for many reasons, from the way I think, to my personal taste for the monochromatic image. The Print I thrive on the skill of digital printing. I love to see my clients respond to the beauty and touch of the archival black-and-white print. The papers and inks available today for black-and-white digital printing are astounding. I work with the best products on the market to compliment my work. The Equipment Factor I currently shoot with a Nikon 200, and for production, I use an Epson 3800 printer, and the highest quality papers such as Epson, Crane, and Hamenmule.
