I remember that I was 9 years old when I decided that I wanted to be a photographer. In science class we made a pinhole camera from a shoebox and a piece of aluminum foil. By placing a piece of photo paper in the box and exposing the paper to light let in through the pinhole in the foil we were able to develop a reverse image of the scene.
I studied graphic arts at Coldwater High School in Michigan and upon graduation I joined the US Navy as a photographer. In the Navy I worked Washington DC as the staff photographer for Rear Admiral Wallace R. Dowd, Jr. Chief of the Naval Supply Corps and then Naval Photographic Command. After reenlistment I worked at the Fleet Air Photo Lab at Cubi Point Naval Air Station in Luzon, Philippines. Since my honorable discharge, I have worked as a freelance photographer with some stops at photo labs and as a computer graphics systems engineer, helping to kick start the digital photography revolution move among professionals photographers.
I enjoy exploring new and creative ways to use photography as my medium in creating exciting fine art. I'm especially proud of the 3D images No 3D glasses required, they can be view similarly to the way you viewed a 'Magic Eye' poster. The preview on this page may be difficult to see in 3D, so if you email me and ask for a 3D sample, I'll send you a different, but useful image and the instructions on how to view them. Then once you can see that you'll understand what the offered artwork will look like.
Also, my photography work with a Laser Wave is creative and pretty cool. Please make sure you check out all 3 Laser Galleries. The Ice Scapes Gallery is also a unique look at what reflected of the ice in my backyard. You will find any one of these pieces are incredibly stunning when framed and hanging on your wall.
