Thanks for stopping by.

I guess this is where I am supposed to tell you that I have been in photography a long time, have had the privilege of taking many workshops under known photographers, have won awards, and my photos have been shown in several places. That is all good and true but none of that is the reason I take photos.

On a good day photography is a very immersive experience for me. I get lost in the subject and my feelings. Time passes unnoticed. I am not thinking composition or rules or 'oh, this is going to be good'. I am just reacting to what is around me. The same is true in post-production. The best times are when I once again get lost in the experience and just interact with the photo to create a final product. I photograph to express myself, to express things that I cannot adequately put into words.

My hope is that you will enjoy looking at my photos and that you find at least one photo that touches you somehow. Ansel Adams said 'There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.

IF YOU BUY ANYTHING, please note that I will not receive any information other than one of my photos has sold. So if you do buy something, send me a note on what you bought and how you plan to use it. That would give me a chance to express my gratitude to you for your purchase.

Thank you very much for taking the time to visit my site and to wade through this bio.
