Studio (for Tour Only)

Tin Can Studio
128 Woodland Avenue
Port Townsend, Washington
Telephone: (360) 531-1016



As with other visual art, solid technique and craft appropriate to the medium are required to achieve the end-product visualized by the artist. I will demonstrate photographic technique and use of equipment in the context of capturing what is in my ‘minds-eye,’ as opposed to the taking of a simple snap-shot. I intend to show a variety of photographs which will in turn lend themselves to the discussion of a variety of techniques.


Tin Can Studio, 128 Woodland Avenue, Port Townsend is located just off San Juan Avenue, 2 blocks north of Discovery Road-F Street intersection. Heading north on San Juan, take a left on Woodland Avenue. It is the second house on the right side of the street. There is lots of parking in the driveway and on the street. The studio is located in the metal building next to the house. Walk through the big gate on the right of the building, and the door is just inside the courtyard.

Artist Statement:

As a nature photographer, my purpose is to find the detail which captures the essence of a greater subject.  There are very few broad panoramic scenes in my portfolio; instead you will find intimate landscapes.  For wildlife, you will find intimate portraits rather than a precise visual description.

I pass along the proceeds from sales of my work to organizations committed to the conservation of our local natural heritage, in particular to the Port Townsend Marine Science Center and the Jefferson Land Trust.

I hope that my work inspires questions, and sincerely welcome dialogue between the photographer and the viewer.  I can always be reached by email at


Studio At 861 Olele Point Road is open by appointment during the rest of the year.
