My Dad handed me his Leica 35mm camera when I was in 6th grade. We had no idea that photography would be my vocation of destiny.  Always with a camera, I handcolored fine art as I worked as a wedding & product photographer

in northern California. I took pictures using medium & large format film cameras, and printed them

on fiber-based papers, losing track of time while dodging and burning highlights & shadows.

I was creating perfection in chemistry-filled trays and it was magic.

Enter the digital arena.

Todays photo editing techniques for computers and programs on mobile devices are precise and has the dimensional look I loved about film. Digital is more than I thought I'd find as I began the journey from celuloid to memory card. 

It's been through the digital darkroom that I found the artist in me,

and I'm glad to be here.

High Resolution Client JPGs are key to creating art photos. Using Photoshop layers, parchment texture backgrounds

and watercolor brushes, favorite images transform into wall art, vinyl outdoor wall hangings and custom calendars.
