Artistic Photography

As an Artist I enjoy making my images as unique as I can. To express the moment or object in a new way. To make it mine and share my vision. I frequently have my camera with me and I am always intrigued by compositions just waiting to be discovered. Sometimes little snips of reality and often a large and panoramic experience will be searching for me.

Digital Photography

I started my photography work with traditional film and a darkroom back in college. Graduating to digital has been pretty exciting and powerful as well. No more smelly chemicals and wasted negatives and prints. I only print the photos I really want. I also enjoy stitching very large panoramas and using filters and tools to make my images unique.

Outdoor Interests

I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, skiing and just plain getting outside and wandering around looking for the best expression of a moment. I carry my camera with me wherever I go and hope for those perfect moments when the light is just right. Other times I set up my studio and work on Macro photographs of glass and other art objects.

I enjoy all types of photography and appreciate any opportunity I get to use my camera and my creative skills.
