Artist Statement



I am an passionate photographer with loads of experience during the past 35 years. Specialities include portraits, beach and artistic nudes, travel and tourism-related imagery, all captured outdoors or interiors by window light.

If interested I also have more galleries in different themes my galleries at http://www.fototaker.net. I am now living in San Francisco continuing my photography. For more information please email me stating which style or type images are desired. I will also accept commissioned work to provide you with the images you desire. Ask for details.

As always, I am seeking gallery or magazine representation; world location is not important. I have a number of continuing projects that would be of interest to the right gallery or magazine. I am also part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Erotica in Barcelona, Spain. This consists of digitally created erotica made just for the museum, and am also working (though slowly) on my book "Memories of Rota - 1977" which will be hopefully published in 2008. This book project is a spin-off from a 2000 photographic exhibit held in Rota which featured imagery created in 1977 while I was a young sailor living here.... the book will contain 35+ images in black and white and commentary in english & spanish about my life there, how things were and how I felt about living in Rota, Spain in those early years.

I am also a part of the permanent collection at the Barcelona Erotica Museum:
Barcelona Museu de l'Erotica
La Rambla, 96 bis

and have participated in the 2006 Seattle Erotic Arts Festival
