I grew up on the Kitsap Peninsula in a home where photography was esteemed. (my father and grandmother were both serious amateurs) I left home after high school graduation got two
BAs and moved to NYC in 1980. There I worked as a free lance photographer. renovated a house in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn, received an MFA in photography from Pratt Institute, got married and had a child. NYC was good to me, I taught at ICP and had a variety of jobs shooting everything from the most beautiful spots in Brooklyn (for a magazine) to grip and grins to opera costumes. I left NYC in 1991, moved back to Washington and became a high school teacher of photography for 24 years. These days, I have retired from teaching and am a full time pinhole photographer.
I also founded and direct thepinholeproject.org in 2013. Now over 4000 people have done long exposure pinhole photographs with me.
