I photograph what I feel and the images found in these galleries are what my camera recorded, the exceptions the Creative Cousins and High-Dynamic Range galleries.

When working on an image, I do my best to remember the moment of capture, what I saw and how I felt. The act of post-processing (lighten, darken, straighten, crop, etc.) an image has been with us from the very beginning of photography and today's digital capabilities are just a natural extension of that. 

I am self-taught and love sharing what I know with others. Where I once had a small black-and-white film darkroom in the mid-1970's, I have used a digital darkroom since 2003. 

Whether it's film or digital, I use the tools at my disposal to create a final photograph which I am satisfied with. I try to keep things as real as possible, and bring back all those wonderful details I originally saw.

Ansel Adams was very excited about the possibilities of the digital image, and I believe he would have fully embraced such tools as Adobe Photoshop and the many different post-processing techniques now at our command.

In some cases, objects have been removed to avoid distractions, but absolutely nothing has been artificially inserted here.

If it is, the image is placed in the Creative Cousins gallery.

If you like what you see here, please support the artist by selecting an image to print or a custom coffee mug.

New images will be added as they are completed, so check back often to see what's new.

"I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs, because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it."
