I took up photography in 2002, shortly after I realized that I wasn't going to be the next Beethoven, Berlioz, or Bartok. I use a large format camera and black & white film. I do all of my own developing, printing, and processing.
Most of my photographs are 4"x5" or 8"x10" contact prints, bleached and toned by hand. You can learn more about my methods here.
I live in the suburbs of Northern Virginia with my wife, Kathleen Alvania.
