At about the same time that I purchased my first 35mm SLR camera, a friend introduced me to backpacking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Since then, my home town of Las Vegas has provided a convenient starting point for photography trips to the high country of the mountain west, as well as the unique landscapes of the desert southwest. Over the years, in addition to 35mm film cameras, I have used Hassleblad, Mamiya, and Pentax medium format film camera systems, Canon DSLR, and Sony digital mirrorless.
I very much enjoyed and appreciate my time at Rocky Mountain School of Photography for helping me make the transition from film to digital photography. Discovering the many benefits brought about by digital technology revitalized my passion and allowed me to better and more effectively control the process from start to finish - capture through presentation.
My work has been presented by galleries in Utah, Montana, and Texas. I have been fortunate to have had the support of numerous private and corporate clients including: Fine Art at Work, Morgan Stanley, Redstone Health Center, Investment Counsel Company, Nevada Title, and Rachel’s Kitchen among others. My work has been published in Cornell College Report, Mountain Express Magazine, and Photographic Society of America Journal among others.
Photography has been about visiting special places. Each image represents a story; some long, some short, but all memorable. The images bring back the moment – senses heightened, sounds of the place, the touch of the breeze, friends sharing the experience, my desire to soak it all in.
