About Keith

Back in the early 60's I became involved with Scuba Diving, which became a life-long passion and eventually a career spanning over 30 years. It wasn't long before I needed to capture and share my adventures with others. For the longest time my photography was centered in the underwater world.

Rarely, did I enter the sea without an underwater camera system or two with me. Over time the images were published in books, magazines, slide presentations and equipment catalogs. My interest in photography continued to grow. About 15 years ago, I transitioned from strictly underwater to a land and studio photographer. Fish became birds, coral became flowers and people remained people -- only drier. I had the opportunity to meet and work with several professionals, allowing me to move intoPet, Portrait, Glamour, Fashion and Boudoir Photography.

When I was deeply involved with Underwater Photography, I had the opportunity to teach others as an Underwater Photography Instructor. Now, workshops and seminars on Portraits, Glamour, Boudoir, Floral, Macro and Pets provide me the opportunity to share my knowledge with inspiring photographers. I also attend the workshops and seminars of my peers whenever possible. One can never stop learning if one is inspired to teach. I still get an exhilarating feeling when looking through my viewfinder, and I’m striving to make my best image yet. This is something I know I’ll never achieve, but never stop pursuing. With the software enhancements available today, I believe a great image is 99% produced in camera and made better in postproduction. We never inspire to make a bad photo acceptable with digital trickery. Photography is the pursuit and control of light. Join me in my endeavor by attending one of my many photographic seminars and workshops as we explore and experiment together with ways to bring our images into the digital age and beyond.
