I am a photography artist interested in great photos and creating art. Often my goal is a great landscape, then the next project I want to accomplish a truly artistic work with an enhanced photograph using imported elements and Photoshop as my main platform. I always want to go beyond the photograph in my art, but I appreciate the photograph as an important part of capturing moments and my view of a subject. I do a lot of photography for industry and community projects, but when left to my own desires I am always working on the next masterpiece for my art's sake. I live in a rural area with agriculture being an important way of life. Many of my works are inspired by my midwest heritage. I love the evolving technology available to photographers and still enjoy shooting film along with digital images. I believe a good background in the origins of photography is essential to being a great photography artist. The most unexpected joy of being a photographer is discovering that every day is beautiful. My goal is to share that beauty with you in my art.
