It's a Beautiful World!

I see astounding, breathtaking beauty virtually everywhere. By mastering my camera equipment and honing my processing skills, I have gained the ability to share this astounding and inspiring beauty with others. I’m proud to share my portfolio with you, and encourage you to reach out with any questions or if you’d like to work together.

Gallery V

The Individuality of a Wave

Long exposures of an ocean wave rolling in and receding reveal that each wave and its interactions manifests a unique expression--the result of many factors, including volume, speed, shape, trajectories, momentary light and interaction with the shore and/or objects there. Some result in more dramatic and/or colorful images, but each is remarkably unique, their individuality inspiring awe.

Night Sky

I love to capture Milky Way and star trail images in remote landscapes where the night sky gets dark enough.

Photoshoots are tailored to the aims of the customer and the message they are trying to convey.
