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

I’m Dom. Welcome to my site.


I am photographer, currently based in Florida, who has been enthusiastically capturing landscape and scenic images for over 45 years. In that time, I have won photography competitions at both local and national levels.


My photographic journey began in 1972, when I exposed and developed my first roll of B&W film, containing images of my German Shepherd and Mini Schnauzer.  When their images first appeared in the developer, I was hooked. Soon after, I discovered the masters like Ansel Adams, Edward Weston etc.  Now, I was hooked and inspired!  As a result, Black and White became my preferred method for creating images.   It still is.


My approach to photography is simple. I search for subjects that excite me and then consider light and its impact on that subject - direction, intensity, quality etc.


Since photography is all about light, I often return to a subject several times before I find light that provides “the look” I envisioned.  Occasionally, I am lucky and find that the subject and light are in “harmony”, on my first visit.


In post process, I manipulate light and shadow to enhance mood, shape, texture, and create emotion, so that the image more closely represents what “I felt”, when I made the exposure.


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.
