Description:
I have over 8 years of experience photographing everything from weddings to landscape and would love the opportunity to work for you.  If you have a need for an affordable photographer that is willing to work at virtually any location you desire, then I am the guy for the job.

I make 35mm color images that help me to reveal what I feel about the natural world: its colors shapes, textures, lines, and forms. My background in science supports my visual expressions on film where my goal is to make a connection between myself and the observer. I try to make familiar and simple things in nature acquire the elegance that I see through my lenses. I hope my work inspires the observer, subconsciously or not, to develop his or her own special vision and see beauty where one might not even know to look. My lenses are my brushes and to create images that transcend the ordinary, I must know exactly how each will visually express the light that is painted on my film. I see an invisible image in my mind’s eye and then endeavor to record it on emulsion. My years as a photography instructor have helped me refine and express to my students myriad photographic concepts, thereby becoming a better artist.

As my best work comes from working alone in the field, since 1997 I have sought opportunities to travel in the wilderness. I try every year to make a solo sojourn into remote areas all over the United States. I camp in places like Death Valley, Okefinokee Swamp, The Rockies, and lesser known locations such as The Bisti Wilderness and the Sawtooth Range. Although there are spectacular vistas everywhere I go, I also enjoy creating abstracts or close-ups that will give the viewer a glimpse of what I feel about what I see in each place. I wake up where the best subjects are in the best light. I work at my own pace and gain my inspiration from the beauty around me. From these trips has come a touring slide lecture entitled: "Death Valley, Okefinokee and Beyond." A retrospective of some of these trips, sprinkled with anecdotes of the places and the events, it is available as evening entertainment during periods of gallery showings of my work.
