Crystal Lake, IL


Born on the northwest side of Chicago. My father and his two brothers were printers for Donnelly and Sons, formerly known as The Lakeside Press.
The company was known for its rotogravure, typeset , litho and large offset printing publications, e.g., Look, Life, and National Geographic.
We had our own dark room/lab at home, self taught I processed and printed my own film at an early age.

I started with a 120 roll film camera and still shoot roll film today with two 6x17cm cameras and a 6x12cm rotating lens camera. I also shoot digital,a Canon often side by side, and digitize all my film with an Imacon and print on a wide format Epson color printer.
