Nature offers us scenes that can be bold or subtle, with magnificent panoramas or intimate details. My goal is to create fine art nature photographs that people can enjoy and connect with emotionally, bringing the beauty of wild places, wildlife, and wildflowers into homes and public places.
I have been involved with photography for over forty years. Over most of that time, a career in program management with high-tech companies took me around the world and moved my family throughout the United States. Over the past ten years, photography became a bigger focus, until it finally became a full-time pursuit.
I now live in Northern Colorado to be close to the grandeur of the Rocky Mountain West, where photography takes me to breathtaking places and allows me to share these scenes through my photos. These images cover a wide range of locations and subject matter, including mountains and deserts, skies and stars, wildflowers and wildlife.
I capture these images using photo equipment to match the subject matter. These images are then refined and optimized to accentuate their emotional impact and to accurately convey what I experience in the field.
In order to share the stories of my photo adventures, I also publish a blog. Each entry describes the subjects and locations, and contains example photos from the trip.
