About

I began my photographic journey many years ago, when for my 8th birthday, I received a "Kodak, Brownie Holiday Camera". A film camera using 127 mm roll film it was not much more than a pinhole camera made from a cardboard box. I was amazed by the images it produced, not for the quality but the magic coming from the tiny brown plastic box. Wow, how does that work! I thought. Photos I made mostly at special occasions, birthdays, holidays and family vacations continue to live in albums, boxes and now in the digital age, on my computer. Some things are worth keeping.
After a number of years I discovered the iconic work of Ansel Adams. The drama of the wide open spaces in the American West captured by Ansel Adams became etched in my mind. They were the perfect compliment for a lifetime love of nature and the great outdoors. I dreamed of going places where no one had ever been, the wilder and more remote the better. That's where I wanted to go. And so I did, pack on my back and Nikon in hand.
Photography became a way to share my experiences and the amazing places I have been with anyone willing to look. It was my personal invitation and attempt to inspire people to visit and experience what lies in their own backyard just waiting to be discovered.
The journey continues. The more I learn, the more I realize how little I know. The more I see, the more I realize how much I have not seen. My satisfaction comes in the never ending journey, learning and experiencing.
Please make any and all comments you may have, they are welcome.
