fototaker in San Francisco - Vision of an Artist

Your Bio

I am a freelance American photographer living between Rota, Spain and San Francisco (where I am now), but with my heart in the Pacific NorthWest! Always seeking to capture details of the street, the events of our daily routines, and of Life as seen through my lens. I've got a passion for reflections, people, color, animals and yes: Black and White. I rarely retouch my images, preferring the tradition work of solid straight photography versus special effects and PS add-ons. I love to write also... if you read any words in the image caption, it's my words.

My images and words cannot be copied, or used in any manner or in any media.

You can also catch my everyday thoughts at G+ as *fototaker Sf,* and my very many older (not recent work) imagery and calendars at Want to "talk" with me? You also can send me non-snail mail at fototaker at gmail dot com

NOW available: America's Cup Team calendars at Please tell me if you like them! I would love to know what you think!
