I began photography with a Brownie camera my parents gave me as a child sometime in the 1950s. In the 1970s I finally graduated to an SLR and actually won a few contests, then took a hiatus through the 1990s but picked up digital photography in earnest in the mid-2000s. Now, many years later, it still excites me to venture out and try to find what the world is all about in my own way through this wonderful medium.

To me, photography is about capturing the hidden meaning, the emotion, and the invisible in a given moment in time. It transcends mere composition and lighting. When it's done well, we sit up and take notice, we pause over an image, and if everything is perfect, we might even feel that slight tingling up the spine.

While I try to achieve this in every photograph, it remains an illusive goal. Occasionally, I come close, but more often I fall short. Luckily, though, it's that falling short that motivates me to continue, and that adds excitement to the craft.

I have a wide range of interests in photography. I hope you enjoy exploring my portfolio. If you do decide to purchase an image, I sincerely thank you. My modest attempts to create beauty - perhaps even "art" - must then surely be validated.

If you are interested in books of my photography, I have published two volumes of travel photography, and they may be purchased through the following web links:
