Hectic Times Setting up and tearing down at art fairs can be a hectic time. During both events, there are many trips back and forth to the car. While the initial items (for me) are the tent, poles, panels and bins, eventually the product (prints) and “office” items are transported. Although I have never…
Fine Art Landscape Photography
When you view a nature print –
– Do you enjoy mentally escaping into the scene?
– Can you feel the breeze, hear the birds, and sense the change around you?
– Are you in the “present”, capturing the scene’s serenity and emotional attachment?
“Giving a Voice”
My photography’s emphasis is to “give a voice” to the land and the natural environment, (paraphrasing a John Denver lyric from “Wild Montana Skies”) in my own small way.
In doing so, allowing you to feel very much a part of the scene.
Music from within the Scene
When initially looking through the viewfinder, I hear the music that comes forth from within the scene. Each aspect becomes one instrument playing its part in the total composition.
Rather than simply documenting what lies before me, I strive to allow you, the viewer, to “be there”, enjoying its “musical composition”.
I believe art is not a commodity. Each creation contains the uniqueness brought forth by the artist.
Combining initial image creation with strategic development, by printing myself, I am able to create the final artistic print with the desired image detail, natural colors and emotional attachment, resulting in the highest quality in every print.
My Quick Story
I am a self-taught, award-winning, Wisconsin-based fine art landscape photographer.
From an early age, I’ve always held an interest in the natural sciences. In the 70”s, that interest merged with photography while stationed with the Navy in the California desert. Using an old Argus 35mm camera with manual light meter, the mountain and desert landscapes filled many rolls of film.
Combining my degree in, and lifelong interest of the natural sciences, I often visualized photographic opportunities while driving many miles in my previous sales career. Due to schedules, I did not have the time to commit the vision to film. My interest, though, in both photography and the natural environment never waned.
Following my conversation with Denali (true story), I retired early from Motorola on Friday, October 13, 2006 and committed full-time to landscape photography.

Do you have an upcoming charity event that helps kids? Would a print donation be of interest? In the past, (and as part of my continuing “Pay it Forward” program), I have been known to donate a fine art print to – what I consider – a very special cause. If you have such an event…
Lightroom since its first release As mentioned in my post titled “My Method“, I shoot everything in Camera RAW (Canon), and process using Adobe Lightroom. I started using Lightroom when it was first introduced and have continued, keeping current with all upgrades. Prior, I had used other software. Nothing came close to what was available…

Sharing What I Know
Through the course of the art fair season, I’m asked if I teach photography seminars. I have, though nothing currently.
