Location: Redondo Beach, California
Description: I’m a largeformat landscape photographer shooting mainly California’s diverse landscapes from coastal scenes to mountains and deserts.  I shoot in 8×10, 4×5 and 6×17 with the 8×10 being my current format of choice. I just love seeing the huge negatives on the light table.  I enjoy the hands on process needed to produce an image in all these mediums; from loading the film, setting up the camera, composing, exposing the film, processing the film and to finally making a print. It is a very slow and deliberate process and gives me time to enjoy and reflect on each image.
