The so-called rules of photographic composition are, in my opinion, invalid, irrelevant, immaterial .” Ansel Adams


Untitled photo

I’m Dom. Welcome to my site.

My initial interest in photography began many years ago when I took an introductory photography class for teachers. I processed the negatives and prints in the school darkroom and when the first image appeared in the developer, I was hooked.

That weekend, I purchased my first 35mm film camera and a complete darkroom. I had found a lifelong passion. Soon after, I discovered the masters, Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, whose work inspired me to create images that "speak" in shades of gray.

Even though we see in color and, for many, color defines a subject and feelings about it; I still choose to render most my images in Black & White. To me, it presents a clearer vision.

Whether photographing leaves, clouds, or a landscape/seascape, my intent is not to simply document a subject, but rather produce an image that fully represents what I "feet", when I am present, viewing the scene.

My work has been exhibited in the Carolinas and online and I have won competitions both locally and nationally.

The images presented on this site are my current favorites. I hope you like them. If you have any questions or would like to comment, please click the Contact link. I would love to hear from you.
