I first discovered a passion for photography when I spent a year in the Far East in the early 1960's. I then began working to capture some of the beauty I found in this world for myself and to share with others.
Primarily, I've developed as a photographer by taking many thousands of pictures and by attending various seminars and workshops over the years. It took many years and many images to develop my skills as a photographer and I continue to love working in this medium.
I'm also very fortunate to still find landscapes stunningly beautiful and often surprising. I travel all over America and across the world seeking to capture those special images that make me stop and refuse to move on. While I search for images that are special to me, there is a unique joy when my viewers discover a particular image resonating for them.
Knowing that others appreciate my work and wish to live with my images in their daily lives inspires me.

A word about viewing the images and ordering. When you double click on one of the gallery "cover photos" below, the gallery will open and display small images in that gallery. Click on one of those images and an enlargement of the image will be displayed. When you are viewing an enlarged image, you may move your cursor to the upper left hand corner of the image and find a "cart" to click. A price list for different sized prints will then be displayed. The process is then easily followed.
