I have been taking photos for most of my life. I got serious in the late 1970's and learned all that I could through books. I then worked in the retail photo industry from 1982 to 1995. This exposed me to a wide range of photographers, techniques and equipment.
In 2004 I bought my first digital SLR and started all over. I have come to embrace this new technology and am continually learning.
Since moving to Nebraska I have grown to love the landscape. Most of my recent work is large prints of the mid-west landscapes, focusing on the brilliant sunsets. Recently I set up a home studio so that I could shoot portraits, macro and still life shots in a controlled environment.
These two extremes - between expansive skies and small details form the bulk of my shooting.
I hope you enjoy my work.
