I started out in a darkroom. The smell of the f-stop and developer delighted me. The quiet of the dark with only me looking at my single negative projected below onto the easel calmed me. Otherwise a person easily distracted, I was magically transformed into a focused, goal driven artist. I would get lost in the dark for hours upon hours and leave with a single image. The process of the developing was one that had struck a chord. I loved the process. The feeling of the process of an art or a craft is still strong within me. It will never leave. It doesn't matter if I am standing in the darkroom or if I am standing in front of you during your session. I am part of a process, watching the session unfold before my eyes, observing, framing, connecting with my subjects. Spending hours upon hours "developing"...I am developing a scene, developing a look, developing your life before me. It is delightful.
