Normally, I'm excited to share my world with you by posting locations, people or events in living, vivid colors. But as my friend and fellow photographer Steve Immel (steveimmelphotography.com/) so effectively displays in his work, there are definitely certain advantages to black and white that effectively convey the character of a situation better than any combination of colors. In this shot of a forlorn tree atop a desolate ridge covered in scrub brush, there was no other way, perhaps, to get across the desolation of this southern New Mexico landscape. As noted B&W photographer Robert Frank put it so eloquently, "Black and white are the true colors of photography, because they symbolize the alternate aspects of despair and hope to which mankind is forever subjected".
With a Marketing Degree from Southern Methodist University, I established my own advertising agency specializing in logo design, capabilities brochures, print/radio/television promotions and client relations. An integral part of my creative labors included photography, a passion that has stayed with me. I hope you enjoy my artistic endeavors.
