The more I go, the more I seem to be moving into a direction I never ever thought. Unexpected things have happened, good and bad and I am still not sure if this is where I am to be or not. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE what I have been doing but there is fear. I fear that I will loose my connection and passion of photographing people because the opportunities have not changed and I am really starting […]
“SOLA” – By oneself; alone. Used as a stage direction to a female character. A beginning of a new and ongoing project. A project that developed unconsciously from a creative idea I had started to structure in 2014. Today it has become more personal than ever. From observer to participant, giving voice, ( in an unexpected manner), to what had remained a mystery for a very long time.
Just a friendly reminder that I will be hosting a pinhole portrait photography workshop that will be a focus on creating unique and one of a kind creative self portraits. This will not be your typical workshop. You will find balance with light and time while creating your own personal portraits. There will be no time spent on building cameras which will give us more time to focus on the possibilities that are endless with pinhole photography. In order for […]

I have been working on building a 5×7 pinhole camera to go along with 2 others I have built in different dimensions other than the typical square box. The bad news is, after almost finishing it I realized that I would have issues with being able to load and unload paper into the box . As you can see it was not done very strategically which means I am back to the drawing board once again. One thing I […]
I am so proud to announce that two of my image will be exhibited at A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas! This is really exciting. My first set of self-portraits exhibited!
So I once again decided to submit to a group exhibit that will take place in Johnson City, Texas at the A Smith Gallery. As some of you may know I have been for last 2 months focused on self portraiture using a pinhole camera. It so happened that as I was doing a search on pinhole photography, I came across this Google link: http://asmithgallery.com/upcoming-exhibitions. So of course I had to check it out. The theme for this art exhibit is […]
This was a first of several images that I am still going through from a two-day stretch testing with an 8×10 pinhole camera. This was a six-minute exposure!
