15 Years of Iconic Photography

15 Years of Iconic Photography

In honour of the site's 15th birthday, I've gone through the archives and found some of the most iconic shots in the site's history for a little retrospective of how far we've come and a reminder of the great pieces you've seen a million times here but might have forgotten! The photography gallery was added sometime in April of 2001 according to the wayback machine, and when it started it only had a few subcategories - Abstract, Architecture, Commercial, Experimental, Journalism, Nature, Portraits, Retro and "Miscellaneous". Early mods in the gallery included olya (https://www.deviantart.com/olya), flummox (https://www.deviantart.com/flummox) and hesitation (https://www.deviantart.com/hesitation) - back when they were called "Tier Admins", not eve

My Bio
I've been an avid photographer since my college days in the 60s and 70s though the interest back then was mostly architectural. Among (many)other things, I've worked as a photojournalist through which I developed an appreciation and skill for capturing "a moment" which tells a story.

My specific interest in male figurative work became serious in the early 90s when I owned a gallery in Key West called "Bodyscapes", one of the few galleries in the country at the time which would feature fine art imagery of the male form. Through the gallery I met and represented some of the finest photographers of the genre in the United States. And, subsequently, thought "if they can do it, why can't I?"

Fifteen years later, practicing my craft, I'm finally arriving at a style that's uniquely my own, gaining some recognition with several one-person shows and building a new career as a photographer. Though what goes around comes around...most of the paid work is as an architectural and interiors photographer. My passion, however, is the male figurative work. It's my intent that can become part of the new career as well.
