Heads up, Humboldt:
While the county's masking mandate has been lifted, Public Health is still strongly recommending masking indoors in public, social distancing and "avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces." COVID-19 is still with us, so be sure to check the protocols at event venues.

Artist’s Statement: “I fell in love with photography over 40 years ago. In 2002 I left my long-time career in mechanical engineering to pursue photography full time. I work in both color and black and white, with both medium- and large-format cameras, as well as in digital format. While my subjects are predominantly natural scenes, I also enjoy photographing interesting compositions and objects from bygone eras, as well as fine art, sports, event, and group photography.” “Originally from Baltimore, I studied at Catonsville Community College and Rochester Institute of Technology. While I’ve completed several classes in photography, I am mostly self-taught. I have exhibited in many galleries and my award-winning photographs are found in homes and businesses throughout the country. My work is available at several locations in Northern California.” “I am a member and president of Ferndale Arts (a cooperative gallery), a member and past president of the Rotary Club of Arcata, head engineering judge for the Grand Kinetic Championship, a member of Redwood Empire Mensa, and a member of the Board of Directors and official photographer of the Humboldt Crabs. I also work as a staff photographer for the Mad River Union newspaper. I have lived on the North Coast since 1977, in Arcata with my wife Tami.”
