This fine art photo of an egret wading through the swamp is from my recent visit to the Big Cypress National Preserve. It’s also an homage to photographer Clyde Butcher. Clyde is famous for his very large scale traditional darkroom black and white prints of scenes in the Big Cypress and Everglades areas.

I’m getting ready for the “Edge of the Day” show at the Speakeasy Art Center in Pekin, Illinois. The opening reception is December 4 and I’ll be there along with Scott Sternberg and Jeremy Duncan to visit with guests and talk about our work.
My fine art photography includes both landscapes and figures but I approach them both the same way. I look for simple shapes and strong tones or colors to create an interesting and graphic element in the image. I describe my style as “graphically simple; technically precise.”
