These days, my life-long interest in photography is most often satisfied by capturing images of ordinary people doing ordinary things; what’s generally known as Street Photography.

People and the things that they do are endlessly fascinating to me.

That said, street photography is a lot like Scotch.  It’s an acquired taste, not immediately understood nor enjoyed by everyone.

A noted street photographer, Matt Stuart, explains street photography in this way, “Buy a good pair of comfortable shoes, have a camera around your neck at all times, keep your elbows in, be patient, optimistic, and don’t forget to smile.

Henri Cartier-Bresson, often regarded as the father of modern street photography stated, “Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”   My work is a testimony to the accuracy of his insight.

My current camera of choice is the Fujifilm X-T1, used with a variety of lenses.  For street photography, I mainly rely on the XF 18mm f/2.0.  On rare occasions, I still pull out the Canon 1D MkIIN or my pocket-sized Canon S110.

Before coming to street photography, I worked as a sports photographer covering college and professional sporting events.  My work was published by Sports Illustrated, ESPN, and a plethora of newspapers and other publications.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you see something that you like.
