I love seeing. Photography gives me a purpose to see more, more sights, more patterns, more constructions, more details in everything I encounter. Through photography I can share what I see with others, sometimes the patterns in a landscape or the personality of wildlife, bringing out the subtle colors in rocks or odd reflections of not just an image, but an idea.

I grew up in an artistic household. My father was a third generation sign painter who became an artist and art teacher when he was forced to take an early retirement. He was a big influence on my life in many ways though we shared only a few years. My brother and I have built a website for him at


From time to time I publish a blog on my photography experiences. To get updates on my blog follow me on or sign up for email on my Contact page.
