For most of my college experience at Duke University, between 1968 and 1972, I was immersed in learning the art and craft of traditional black and white photography.

I was formally trained in a mentorship program under John Menapace. I was devoted to embracing the "straight photography" approach by exploring expressive forms of taking photos, applying fine art standards in the process from start to finish, and paying extreme attention to detail and consistency regarding the technical aspects of photography; exposure, film processing, printing, and preservation/presentation. However, I did not pursue a career in photography.

For the most part, my negatives from the Jimi Hendrix concert in Raleigh remained in storage, unexplored. In 2006, I decided to select the best of the black and white images and I began the process of producing fine art prints from the well-preserved negatives.

After months of testing chemicals and papers and printing hundreds of test prints exploring contrast, framing, and size, I ended up with five images that best capture the intensity of that special night.

I am a one-man, cottage industry shop. I personally print and process each image in my home darkroom, working from my lab notes and calibration data to ensure consistent quality for each print. I trim the photos,mounted them on acid-free mountboard, and sign and date each print under the image in pencil.
