I offer you my perceptions of subjects, places, people and events. I hope that while you look at these images you can "see" and "feel" what I have as I have taken these images and created this art. If it touches you, the way it did me...then the truth of the moment and the beauty that abounds in that moment is complete.
What I as a "photographer am looking for is the life force, the heartbeat of what I encounter: While I cannot know in advance what shape this force will take, I recognize it instantly when I am in its presence. A gesture, a shape, a throw of light or depth of shadow moves me into another realm, ignites a memory or a vision of a deeper truth".

I have been actively seeking the secrets to great art for a number of years. While seeking to learn to make better reference pictures for my watercolors I fell in love with photography and have been pursuing it for the last 5 years. I spend all my artistic energies learning to capture the ordinary and extrodinary in a way that shows my own perceptive vision of the subjects.
I started with a Canon Rebel 2000 upgrading to a 7e and then a EOS 1V, when the Canon 10D came out I went completely digital.
I enjoy shooting all types of subjects but have been concentrating on people, capturing just the right look, creating portraits and weddings.
Living in Utah I am surrounded by nature and scenic beauty of all kinds and I enjoy traveling the West to find subjects. I look forward to other travels and explorations in the future in other parts of the world.
