Photography has expanded my awareness and Beingness and my appreciation for being alive. I love capturing the beauty of people, nature and life. I am in constant fascination. Photography is my passion.
My photography has taken me around the world from across the United States to the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Japan, down to Australia, and across to Spain.
Photography has given me an acute awareness and insightfulness into people and situations. I shoot with the eye of a hunter. Patient, quick, accurate to capture the moment the subject reveals its unique beauty.
I strive to capture the life, the beauty, the art, and the truth in people and situations. I’m friendly and professional. I like to bring out and capture the best in people. Get them to express themselves and bring out their ability to look at themselves with respect.
Parts of my portfolio contain vintage photos of Classic Rock and Roll Bands including the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Jethro Tull and others.
