My Background

I've loved taking pictures since I was a child.  I had to borrow a camera for a class in high school, and have been hooked ever since.  I worked for a local photo-lab (back when they had those) and was able to purchase my first camera (a Fuji).  I now have moved to the world of Canon and own a few cameras and lots of glass.

Photography as Communication

I enjoy mostly nature photography but have been known to capture a wedding and/or people on occasion.  I met my wife though photography and we enjoy our times with cameras in hand.  I have won a few local contests, have had some of my work published (Birds & Blooms, Jeep/Subaru magazines, local news paper) and have sold some at local art shows.

Sharing Stories

I enjoy hearing stories from my friends and family about something they saw and it reminded them of my photography.  I am often asked 'Where did you take that photo?' - and my response is - AnyTown, USA.  You just need to slow down, stop and look around - beauty can be found everywhere.
