About Me & News
After spending the last 15 years shooting fashion and portraiture in Arizona, I developed a new vision. While in the Southwest I've found the majestic landscape and decaying architecture amazing and worthy subjects to photograph. These awe-inspiring places fascinate me. The deteriorating Route 66 architecture makes a great backdrop story for my portrait work and the amazing southwestern United States is one of the most spectacular regions on Earth to photograph.
I graduated from the School Of Photography at Orange Coast College in 1986. I was exhibiting, winning awards and being published back in those days of film.
I've added two new series for sale in Fine Art Series, Southwest Portrait Series and Abandoned Series.
I am developing my hand carved frames for my photography. Warm and rich with a simple design suited for photographs. (Did you know I was included in Cowboys and Indians Magazine 100 top artists for my carved furniture?)
My photography won best of festival in 2020 and 2nd Place this year at the "The Wild Bunch Film Festival"
I have invested in a first class giclee printer. Along with a new search for just the right art paper, I will be making limited editions available soon. Only 20 editions and 3 proofs will be available in four sizes for each offered photograph.
My landscape and nature photography are becoming dominate in my portfolio. My visits to Utah and Wyoming in 2020 and 2021 have been very fruitful.
I finished my Character Traits Series with model/actress Bobbi Jeen Olson in 2019. They are fictitious studies of individual characters I developed to create a story within a scene I photographed prior. I compare them to a country song in a photograph. My impromptu self-portrait on this page with Bobbi is from one of its shoots. Limited editions will be available soon.
