For me, photography has always been an extension of my travels and of my curiosity. Unlike the artistry of most landscape and commercial photographers, early in my journey with photography, time did not always allow me to seek perfect conditions, take repeated exposures, or make numerous adjustments to the configuration and settings of my equipment. As a result, my early photographs are not so much artifacts, but rather attempts to record a brief moment of my own experience. The angle, hour, lighting, and weather didn't always cooperate. It was serendipity that the composition, color, emotion, and subject matter of some of the thousands of photographs I have taken successfully captured the moment as I remember having lived it. Luckily, some of those are also beautiful images in and of themselves. More of my more recent work has been done using a digital camera, and at times I did have the opportunity to seek more ideal conditions.
I am a retired educator living in Georgetown, Texas, with my wife Elaine. During my career as an educator, I worked with the Department of Defense Dependent Schools in Japan, England, and Germany. This precipitated a life-longlove of travel and photography. Since returning to the United States in 1984, I have continued to pursue both, especially in the United States, but I still try to visit other countries when possible.
In addition offering more recent images for sale on the Fine Art America webpage, I also have many of my earlier images on a personal website.
