I've been an avid photographer for many years. My appreciation of photography started at an early age with a box camera and a few lessons in developing black and white film. Making a living outdoors in man-made environments created an appreciation of natural elements, light, shadows, color and space. The majesty of nature has taken me from the east coast to the west coast, from caves to the tops of mountains.
My cameras allow me to capture the unspoiled, untouched natural world. The Spirit of nature calls me back again and again. Every day is an opportunity to appreciate the challenge of being in the right place at the right time to get the right image. Sharing what I’ve created is a pleasure in itself especially when the picture I've taken, captivates someone else.
I’m a lifelong resident of Northeast Ohio, and a member of the Cleveland Photographic Society.
I thrive on creating distinctive compositions, while capturing beauty in the ordinary. My photographs instill peace and tranquility to today’s stressful life. Early in the morning is when I love to capture my exposures, as nature is just waking up; when the air is cool, winds are calm, and solitude is found with the land and its creatures. Each season of the year has its own charm, bringing different light and subjects to capture.
My view upon image processing is rather traditional, to provide a classic look that will be timeless upon your wall and mine. Many people are surprised to hear my best photographs were captured around the Cleveland, Ohio area.
