Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana I was surrounded by culture and traditions, good food, good music and good people. It was the way of life. I didn't truly come to appreciate the beauty of life in New Orleans until I lived away for some years. In the early '90's" I returned to live in New Orleans with a primary photographic goal to capture and therefore document, the life and culture of my beautiful city. This especially includes its' musicians, for whom I have a great affinity. I was able to do this for 12 years before hurricane Katrina forced me away again, and made some changes to both my city and my life. I am again living in Louisiana but not in New Orleans. This is for personal reasons, not because of the city. The city continues to be a great place to visit and indulge but not yet so great for me to live in again due to family commitments. I photograph a variety of subjects from children to bridges. I tend to lean toward cultural and artistic subject matter, especially musicians in performance. For a photographer who enjoys performance portraiture, New Orleans is paradise. The creativity oozes up thru the cracks in the sidewalk and I try to capture as much of it as I can manage with my camera.
In the pages of these Galleries I will be working my way backwards thru my archives of the past 30 years. I have been working with digital Media since 2000. Everything prior to that was film and slides which are being converted to digital. My images are natural, candid, and with ambient lighting. I hate it when I point a camera at someone and they strike a pose. In such instances I will usually put down my camera and wait.
