Listening to what nature offers
As a self-taught, award-winning, landscape photographer, my photographic goal has always been 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.
Since I was young, I’ve held an interest in the natural sciences. Stationed in the California desert with the Navy, I picked up an old Argus 35mm camera and started enjoying nature photography.
My interest in both photography and the natural environment never waned. Combined with my natural science degree, I visualized photographic opportunities while driving many miles in my previous sales career. Following my conversation with Denali, I retired early from Motorola on Friday, October 13, 2006 and committed to landscape photography full-time.
When looking through the viewfinder, I hear the music that nature offers. Each aspect of the scene becomes one instrument playing its part in the total composition. Rather than simply documenting what lies before me, I strive to allow the viewer to emotionally enter the scene, experience the nuances of the image, appreciate its “musical composition” and benefit from its inspiration.
Much of my photography is of Wisconsin, supplemented with Rocky Mountain National Park and ancillary locations. The Portfolio provides a quick overview of my photography. The area-specific galleries contains additional images, supplementing the portfolio.
Publishing credits include: Chicago Life, National Wildlife, Mother Earth News, Wisconsin Trails, Country Extra, Weekly Reader, Scholastic, AAA Living, Smokies Life, Northern Woodlands, Wildflower, Wisconsin DNR, museums, books, magazines, advertising, and murals. (With stock photography on Alamy, I do not know where the image is utilized).
The ultimate expression of my vision – the Print
The fine art print you see displayed in my booth, or receive upon your order, is the ultimate expression of my photographic vision. As an artist, I must be in complete control of the final product. As such, I print my own work.
Combining thoughtful image creation and strategic development with skillful printing, I am able to create the artistic print with the natural colors, image detail, and emotional attachment that I desire.
Don’t take my word. Please read the customer testimonials from just some of the many proud owners of my prints.
Nationwide, my prints are now in homes, schools, corporate settings and residential living facilities.
