Black and White Photography
About my black and white photography
Black and white photography has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I’ve been a black and white photographer since the mid-1980’s and I first began showcasing my photography online on my website starting in 1998.
About my black and white photography influences
Among my photography influences/inspirations are black and white photographer Lee Friedlander, black and white photographer Ray Metzker, Saul Leiter (both his black and white and colour work), and colour photographers William Eggleston and Harry Gruyaert, to name a few.
Share my website, and any of my photographs that you like on whatever social media you use. And follow this site, and the blog, to see my most recent photographs as I add them!
