Served 20 years as a photographer in the United States Army Signal Corp. Some of my notable military photographic assignments were: photographing armistice meetings in Panmunjom Korea; still and motion picture documentation of army weapons and equipment testing in sub-arctic conditions-at the Cold Regions Test Center, Fort Greely, Alaska; and making 16mm medical training films at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in Washington DC.
I met Debbie who became my wife several years after retiring from the army and we moved to Pass Christian, on the Mississippi gulf coast. The devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, forced us to relocate back Las Vegas.
Photography for me now is the joy of capturing the beauty of nature. Shooting animals with one of my cameras is my way of hunting. Sunrises give me the excuse of crawling out of bed and off I go with the camera. The living colors of growth and shapes of terrain diversity seem to beg to be photographed. It is an endless pursuit to find the perfect picture that I know will take many lifetimes to find. Yet, the discoveries made along the way are the motivating currency needed to continue onward. Not to mention the exercise benefit to my health.
Knowing that my photography will be hanging on many walls of offices and homes brings me a rewarding sense of accomplishments.
