What Gary says about himself:

My love of the photographic image and craft began when I became the photographer for my high school newspaper in Kokomo, Indiana. I continued my education at Indiana University, in Bloomington eventually moving to Santa Barbara, California, to attend Brooks Institute of Photography.  For the past 40 years I have made my home in Northern California.

My photographic images have been recognized by exhibitions in many galleries and publications. Having won numerous awards, including Best of Show for two years at the Sacramento Fine Art Center, accepted into the California State Fair Fine Art Show and received awards 9 years annually in Black and White magazine. My most recent achievement was the publication of two books, “iPhone Photography for Everybody, Black and White Landscape Techniques” and “Digital Black and White Landscape Photography, Fine Art Techniques from Camera to Print” both published by Amherst Media. I have also authored three self-published books: Sierra Nevada Mountains, Redwood Coast: Sea and Land and Iceland: Forces of Nature.  

My professional career spans more than four decades and includes, fine art, portrait, and commercial photography.   My knowledge, expertise, and enthusiasm for the photographic image enabled me to successfully teach theory and technique at the college level and seminars in Europe on the English country landscape. I am fluent with all film formats, from 35mm to 8×10, and I have now embraced the digital image and the ever-changing environment of photography in the current technological age.

My work is exclusively in black and white. This medium best relates the shapes, lines, and tones of the landscape and more fully captures what I am viewing when I look at a scene. I find the creation of photographic art today to offer endless possibilities for creativity and the making and sharing of visual art. As an artist, I try to not only pay respect to the natural order and beauty of the earth but also to show my vision of the land, sea, and light.
