My interests are diverse. Just like any photographer,
I shoot in several different styles... several different genre.
Maybe this will describe my goals and hopes a little....
Graphic Imagination Studios - Fine Art Candid Portraiture
Invisible Light Photography & Explorations in Infrared...
At the present I am shooting primarily figure and environmental nudes.
This is the area I am most interested in exploring, especially in Infrared.
I am fascinated with the whole idea & concept of
painting with Invisible Light...
Digital Infrared is a very interesting medium, lending itself highly to
creativity. Using light that we cannot see... everything takes on a different
look, even in b&w. Everything takes on an ethereal quality. Skin tones become
very smooth with an almost porcelain glow, leaves and most foliage become
white, clouds stay white but have added detail and blue skies become very dark
and dramatic. There is an element of discovery... of the unexpected.
This work is done mainly for the sake of Art.
Most works are done for the purpose of Photographic Gallery Competitions.

For me, photography has always been a very serious pursuit.
2nd generation... my Dad was a shooter, a hobbyist & professional, (he even
went to Brooks) and I'm his eldest son, so as a little boy I hung around my
hero. Quality time with Dad was always trying to help in garage, the yard or
holding a reflector. I grew up with it, but I was the only one to catch the
I have always shot... I worked on cruise ships for a few years... camera went
everywhere I went... including underwater. Scenic, flora and fauna, I've shot
enough of it for the time being... unless I see a really good shot of course.
Always as a serious hobby, for myself. Now I'm trying to make a living shooting
real estate, events and casual portraiture.
