The Background: I have been an active photographer since the early 1970s. In the beginning years I primarily shot and processed B & W. For the last 20 years I have used a DSLR to shoot architectural photographs of client's homes showcasing the work of my company Doopoco Enterprises Fine Custom Cabinetry.
Photography for me is and has been an opportunity to experience and capture a bit of magic that unfailingly seems to present itself to me every time I pick up my camera. Its a reminder for me what a gift it is to be a witness and participant in the artistry that unfolds around me everyday.
I enjoy motorsport and surf photography. I enjoy capturing the moment as a surfer is ripping a cut-back throwing up a curtain of spray on the canvas of the blue sky or catching the last rays of the sun through the face of a wave. Just being at the beach breathing in the sea breezes while watching surfers create their art is a true pleasure.
I enjoy speed, (yours truly in the photo above) and the focus that is required to squeeze another tenth off my time around a track. I'm a fan of F1 and IMSA racing and attend races when I can always taking my camera to enjoy freezing 200 MPH into a frame full of motion and intensity.
On the quieter side, I love being outdoors with my camera attempting to share moments of beauty and solitude with others through my photography. We have a cabin on Figueroa Mountain in the Santa Barbara mountains that affords multiple opportunities of expression.
I thrive on creativity and the challenge of learning whether designing high-end cabinetry for our clients or feeling inspired to frame and capture a fast moving race car, a surfer shredding a wave, a raptor in flight or a peaceful landscape in nature. Inmotionstills is an expression of some of that creativity. Thank you for visiting and I hope that you enjoy.
