My mother introduced me to photography as a child with a Brownie black and white film camera and continued her joy of picture taking until her passing. In addition, my uncles Cody and Hugh Grider were avid camera and photography enthusiasts. I consider myself a fortunate man to have family that have had such a profound impact on me in such a special way, and by my wife Becky who was my biggest fan until the end. In turn, I have passed on my love for photography to my daughter Callan who is interested in painting, jewelry design, fashion, and fashion photography.
I prefer using nature's light whenever possible and am drawn to the beauty of objects and landscapes in and around my home. I use a number of digital software programs in order to enhance my own artistic vision of how each photographic capture should be revealed to the beholder.

Welcome to my new Americana Photographia gallery. My goal is to create unique photographs that have been recently captured and transformed to fit my own vision and style I call Retro Sunset Vintage.
I begin by capturing the sharpest image possible in the best light possible, then through various adjustments with tones and lighting using multiple software programs and filters, produce images that touch me emotionally and artistically.
My purpose is not to create the most perfect technical photograph or follow any particular set of rules. I use digital photo software to obtain the tones that are most pleasing to me with minimal cropping or structural adjustments to the object or landscape in the original photo
The photographic images in my new collection are a result of landscapes, objects, and colors that I enjoy. I hope that you will find the same appreciation for the warm browns, turquoise, rust, and golden tones depicted both naturally and through the use of various digital filters in this series. The amusement park photos were partially inspired from the work of Alwin H. Kuchler, German cinematographer from the motion picture, HANNA. The film scenes from the abandoned amusement park are not only symbolic to the storyline, but captured in a very stylistic manner.
My goal is for each image to become a time machine that transports you to another place and time in order to leave your present day thoughts and stress behind.
Plans are to have LIMITED EDITIONS of large high resolution prints from this series be made available on request at a password protected gallery.
I hope you enjoy my galleries and that you will send me your comments via Email.
