After playing around with my mother's old "box" Brownie as a child, my interest in photography really took off when I went to Architecture School. While Architecture didn't "stick", photography did. An audited Photo 101 course, thirty plus years of shooting, and thousands of travel miles later...here we are.
In this age of digital manipulation, other than some levels and color correction, I do little to alter the image. I want to present these images (and any artistic content) as I experienced them, not as I "imagined" or "re-imaged" them. Occasionally, I may stray into "artistic" effects or treatments but they will be clearly apparent.
In addition to the print works for sale here, I have over 7,000 images for stock commercial purposes, As evidenced in the Galleries, my primary subjects are landscapes, both urban and natural. But I also have a fair amount of nature (sunsets, plants, animals, etc) and candid portraiture as well. So if you don't see something you like or are a graphic or advertising professional and have a request, please send me an e-mail. I'll see what I have that might fit your needs or concept.
I offer professional image enhancement for a nominal fee. Let me take those vacation and family photos that are just a "little off" and make them as high quality as possible. Rates start at $2 per image and your first 5 images are free so you can "try before you buy" (rate slightly higher for extreme overexposed/underexposed, heavy editing, or scanned images). Compare these rates to up to $25 per image at photo store chains.
I also offer personalized southwest US and northwest Mexico trip planning and guide services. Perfect for beginning photographers who want to focus on shooting, not driving.
Just shoot me an e-mail at the link above or under "Contacts" from any page.
