photography & futureHistory

the qualities that make a great image haven't changed.

The concept of futureHistory was born in 1994 when creating my first web site. Digital cameras were still out of reach, but the future was coming fast.
I've been a professional photographer since 1984. From weddings to corporate clients to newspapers, I've taken great pleasure in the range of people I've had the opportunity work with.
Happily, I was also an early adopter of computers - purchasing my first in 1986. Computers and the internet created a digital photographic revolution that seems to have changed everything.
More images are being taken today than at any other time in history. Modern technology, however, hasn't changed what's at the core of a memorable photography, or a successful relationship - trust, attention and cooperative interaction.
Whether it's a classic portrait taken with a vintage wooden bellows camera from under a dark cloth, or a stolen moment captured with an ultra fast DSLR, the tools have changed, but the qualities that make a great image haven't.
  • Photographs open doors into the past, but they also allow a look into the future.
