Bio

In the early 1960s I purchased a used Nikkormat 35mm SLR with a 50mm lens and some Ektrachrome slide film and headed into the High Sierras. When I received the processed slides I was completely and positively overwhelmed. The images were so vivid and real ... I felt I could walk into them and I would be there. From that time forward I have had a passion for going to the beautiful places and capturing the beauty and soul that I find.

I have, ever since, been addicted to cameras, lenses, paraphenalia of all sorts to help me in my quest. At one time I thought to do photography for a living. But I finally realized that capturing the images was what I desired ... I was doing the photography for me and that was sufficient. I have sold some of my prints, and that pleases me some, but I photograph the way others play golf. It's theraputic.
