Photography is not a job for me, it is a passion for capturing memories.

 

“I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and now live in Beaverton and Gearhart, Oregon. As a kid growing up, I always loved the photographs in Life magazine. These pictures reached out from all parts of the world and showed both the beauty in landscapes as well as the reality of life.  

In high school and college I was a photographer for my newspaper and yearbook. In my senior year of high school I was the Assistant Photographer for the City of Cleveland and learned the fine art of photography and darkroom applications. 

I especially like to take pictures of landscapes, nature, sports and historical objects. I am fascinated in the various textures that nature has provided, allowing me to bring these objects to print.    

I have traveled to Europe 9 times and visited 29 countries which has given me the settings for some of my best photographs.  

Recently my photographs of the Bridge of Sighs and the Leaning Tower of Pisa in black and white were sold to ABC television and used on the Criminal Minds TV show.”
