In my eyes, my camera is a device that allows me to capture the awe-inspiring artwork of the master painter...and allows me to show all that heaven, may in fact, exist.
Born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, I have been a photography enthusiast since the age of 12...wearing out my first 35mm SLR camera, a Vivtar XV-1, along the way. Through the days of film and the darkroom, to modern DSLRs and computer processing, I've shot everything from sports and senior portraits to abstracts and pets . Through all of this, I discovered Landscape and Architectural photography is where I have a certain gift and an immense love for. Composition, light and bending certain rules of photography are what I hang my hat on!
I truly hope you enjoy what I see through my lens.
