I am a very serious amateur photographer. I have primarily been shooting B&W film, but have recently converted to B&W and color digital. I have been doing landscape and seascapes for decades, but recently attended the Weston Nude Photography Workshop in Carmel and have fallen in love with fine art figure photography.

Beyond the basic form and lighting of the pose, is providing a contrast of the smooth live flesh of the model with the texture of the image's setting. The studios seamless backdrop, replaced with the rough wood of a ancient buildings floor. The model draped in rope or chain, such as Herb Ritts Man with Chain. Even to the point of contrasting life and death, with the model posed against the grave or bones of the dead.

  • I am still in shock at your rapid passing. Time is all too brief when we share a common pursuit of beauty, harmony, and excellence. Death comes to all of us and that time is rarely of our choosing. I will miss you my friend, all things come from creation and all things return. I trust all the great questions we had previously now have answers in the great beyond.

  • Patrick - thank you for the opportunity to participate in creative experiments with the posed figure. Wish there was time for more, so rest in peace with each idea captured perfectly.

  • RIP my friend...a wonderful teacher, mentor, friend and most of all, artist.

    Until we meet again.
