For most of my adult life a camera has been seen strapped on me one way or another. I try to find a style and not a genre as cliche as it may sound, I have combined many forms of photography into my work and what I truly want to show is the human psyche at its core. The true portrait of a person. During the day I make computers do cloud things, in my free time I pursue the arts through photography and animation.
The inspiration for the name comes from the famous group known as "Group f/64" which comprised of such legendary photographers Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham, John Paul Edwards, Sonya Noskowiak, Henry Swift, and Willard Van Dyke. I love these guys really, I have books and books of there work and surround myself with the best imagery I can find. I have traveled many miles to see their work in person and draw inspiration. I'm a trained technical animator as well, which I feel gives me an edge in that I'm able to almost anticipate any moment.
The term f/64 refers to the smallest aperture setting on a large format camera, which secures maximum depth of field, rendering a photograph evenly sharp from foreground to background. Such a small aperture sometimes implies a long exposure and therefore a selection of relatively slow moving or motionless subject matter, such as landscapes and still life, but in the typically bright California light this is less a factor in the subject matter chosen than the sheer size and clumsiness of the cameras, compared to the smaller cameras increasingly used in action and reportage photography in the 1930s.
