Randy focuses on photography as the search for exciting light revealing form, texture, and shape. Randy states, “When I’m photographing, the last thing I need is a camera. I wander about with my eyes and mind, free of preconceived ideas. My best photographs summon me, demanding their creation.” Randy’s interest in photography began in high school with a couple of basic photography classes. He became more involved in photography in the 1980s. After finding 35mm and medium format lacking, in 1993, Randy began to use a large format view camera which proved to be the best tool for his work. “View cameras require quiet deliberation which, for me, results in superior photographs. His films and fine prints are taken and developed traditionally in his own darkroom, which today, is a hard commodity to find in the field of photography.
