Aloha, and welcome to my site.


I am a self-taught portrait, sport, pet, landscape photographer.  The images that I've created on my website are from the western part of the United States.  


My work is almost exclusively natural light photography, of subjects that celebrate nature's and man's creation, and turn them into fine pieces of art.


My goal in my images, is to help the viewer feel awed by what surrounds us, if only we look closer.  To generate an expressive image that creates a feeling of peace, tranquility, and spiritual quality.


The transition from film to digital photography, has allowed me to become more creative. It provides the opportunity to see results quickly, and, in most instances refine my technique right on the spot.


Photography is a form of meditation for me and helps get me out of the chaos of the world. I particularly love capturing the way light hits a scene or a subject that creates attention grabbing images.


I love being around water--oceans, lakes, and streams. And, recently, I've grown extremely fond of the desert and the incredible light it posesses.  Some of the most spectacular sunsets I've ever seen are from the high desert regions of New Mexico.


Among my favorite places for landscape photography are the Big Sur coast of California, Carmel, Monterey, and Morro Bay. Then there is the red rock country of New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona.  Also, favorite National Parks to hike are Rocky Mountain National Park and Glacier National Park.


Peace and Love to all people of this breathtaking planet Earth!


Mahalo (thank you), for visiting my site!
