About

I began taking pictures in 1981, and worked as a professional photographer until 1992. In the course of my professional work I have photographed various models, celebrities, weddings, landscapes and still life. Most notable were Nolan Ryan of the Texas Rangers and the heavy metal band Iron Maiden during their Somewhere In Time world tour.

While pursuing my first career as an Architect and then moving into the software business working for companies such as Symantec and Amazon.com I took a fourteen year break from photography. With a sincere desire to get back to my artistic side and encouragement from family and friends, I returned to photography in Jan of 2007.

Now, all digital, I have enjoy shooting the beautiful landscapes of the Pacific Northwest to the vistas of Central and West Texas. While my primary focus is fine art images that capture the landscapes and local scenery, I also do portrait work, as well as studio and model work.

I hold a Bachelors Degree in Architecture from Texas Tech as well as a Masters in Computer Science with a Minor in Photography. I am a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP)Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and American Society of Media Photographers as well as a Certified Web Professional (CWP) from the International Web Masters Association and the HTML Writers Guild.
