I specialize in Assignment work covering any subject anywhere !
Back in the 80's I specialized in Outdoor Photography. I turned down any assignments that were offered outside of that specialty, since it was taught that you must "specialize" in a specific area of photography. By the late 80's I was
photographing Architectural and Models as well as my usual Outdoor assignments. I realized that my specialty was "Photography" and with my extensive knowledge of equipment, light and composition, i could photography any
subject, anywhere and produce stunning results. In those days, I used film with Nikon 35mm bodies, and still do. No LCD to check the shot on location, it was just pure knowledge of photography at work. Today I still offer my
expertise to anyone who requires high quality images with fast and friendly service, on film or digital.
Mission Statement

Nature is the driving force behind my career. Growing up in rural areas it was natural to spend more time in the wilderness than indoors. Even though I photograph a variety of assignments, outdoor
photography is still the heart of my business. Not everyone lives in a rural area and it’s a moral obligation to promote a greener lifestyle and hope that each person takes steps to conserve our
natural resources and preserve our world. This is a lifestyle, passion, and desire to have a greener planet for our future generations to enjoy.
Please help preserve our Natural Lands and Wildlife.

Why are my pictures so small?

The answer can be lengthy. In short, it's a matter of unauthorized usage. It's a common practice to lift images off a web site or do a screen shot, then use those
pictures without permission. If a legitimate business or person needs to view larger samples, they can always contact me and I'll send some over for their
review. By keeping 99% of my images at 3" or less, it minimizes unauthorized commercial use.

Cinematic and Photographic Ethics - I provide cinematic and photographic services to a variety of clients using the best equipment suited to the project at hand.

I do not engage in "setting up images"  by means of staging. There's a difference between creating an advertising campaign and actually catching life as it happens.

All digital pictures are processed like film pictures. They are captured in the cameras RAW format, then uploaded and exported in a RAW file converter like film in a developer.

I do not alter/manipulate pictures. I prefer that they look just like what I saw when I pushed the shutter button. If I alter/manipulate an image, it is clearly marked as such.
