My interest and passion in photography is guided by my need to express myself and capture the beauty of the natural world. Besides the fact that I grew up in season-less Southern California, my parents not only enjoyed but had an abiding respect for the natural world. They provided me an early exposure to the beauty of the surrounding areas and also the wide panoramas of more exotic places such as Mexico, Canada, and the Desert Southwest. Rather than glitzy tourist traps, my folks sought the solitude of the wilder and more peaceful places. They were avid photographers who memorialized these trips on film. My life took me north to the Willamette Valley of Oregon where I have lived for many years. Those early influences made a deep impression on me.. My passion is to capture the beauty that I find in this world and create a piece that truly moves the viewer. An ideal photo would draw forth the profound sense of awe that I felt as a child when I first discovered the grandeur that exists. If you like what you see, please leave a comment or drop me an email. If you are interested in purchasing or publishing any of these images, I will be happy to assist you. Thanks for stopping by...
