Welcome! You've made it this far, so why not journey a little further into the photo galleries and take a peek? Most of my photography was created within a 100 mile radius of Mount Vernon, Iowa, and occasionally in Arizona, Washington and Wyoming, where I roam the beaches, woods, trails, creek beds, valleys, fields and prairies in search of nature, critters, landscapes and interesting beauty to share.
Nature photography has a special place in my heart since it may take a lifetime to fully understand the balances, forces, changes, inner workings and power of Nature. It's an honor and challenge to interpret and represent the natural world through a lens, to share it with others, and to understand its powerful ability to transform and change.
I use a variety of techniques to create digital and film images...at times using High Dynamic Range techniques if the scene has high contrast, or blending exposure-bracketed photos to layer the best of each one...but every once in a while, magic will happen and one shot captures the essence of a scene. In those moments, light is usually the single most influential element, and it becomes a wonderful experience that is hopefully conveyed to the viewer.
My photography has been described as portraying nature in an honest, dramatic and beautiful way, and I look forward to sharing it with you!
Here's hoping you have a most satisfying journey through life as you explore new opportunities, new visions and meet new friends! Thank you sincerely for stopping by.
