I have loved photography since the first Kodak Brownie camera I got as a kid. My main interest is in landscape and nature photography. My side interest is photographing Track and Field as I follow the career of my daughter who is a professional track athlete.  

My favorite landscape and natural subject is the Adirondacks. This started when I used to come to the area for Boy Scout camp as a kid and continued as we vacationed on Lake Champlain at my grandfather’s camp throughout my teens. Now, living here full time, I am glad to have my favorite subject so close at hand.

Happily, I have returned to being a member of the Northwind Fine Arts Gallery after some time away  and look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with and be continually inspired by the work of an excellent group of artists. 

I continue to read about and absorb the work of other photographers and artists, in an effort to bring my visions to print. I look forward to finding those photos that capture either a fleeting moment in time, or a vision that might otherwise be missed.
