I've been interested in photography since I was a kid but didn't get serious about it until I got to college where I, mostly self-taught, shot for the yearbook and college newspaper. Lucky for me it was the late 60s and early 70s so environmental-type portraits (you know, people hugging trees -literally, guys sitting on huge boulders contemplating the problems of the world, women with flowers in their hair, etc) replaced the stuffy, studio portraits of earlier years. Good times, man!
For the next 17 years I worked to support a family and pay the rent but always in photo-related or visual arts fields. For the last 20 years I've had the good fortune of doing what I really enjoy - being in my own business as a working photographer, videographer, and audiovisual tech (it pays to diversify). I mainly serve the corporate community by providing event coverage, slide shows, group photos, portraits, training videos and technical services.
I've always had the desire to create pieces that people would want to hang on their walls and enjoy. My collection of photos is diverse. From close-ups of flowers to skylines to landscapes to whatever catches my eye, I'm sure you'll find something that catches yours. I will be constantly adding pieces so please check back often.
