New Uploads for September, 2020
I finally have some "new" photos! Ok, the first set aren't new, they're more old negatives and slides that I scanned over a 12-day vacation in September. Instead of boarding a plane in Alberta to come home after enjoying a visit to Banff National Park in Canada, I found myself at my computer after having spent the previous week scanning old slides and negatives that for some reason or another hadn't before. I found that...

A Picture May be Worth 1000 Words…
This is going to be an odd post for a photographer's blog, but here goes... Once long ago, in the days when thin plastic strips coated with photosensitive chemicals were loaded into manual focus cameras, when you had to take 36 pictures before you could go to the lab with your little yellow canister and trust that you would see your prints a week later, I carried my Nikon EM and Nikon EL-2 everywhere. I...

When Life Gives You LeMons…
As you may know if you've been following my photography, I vary quite a bit in my subject matter. I've done lots of landscape, architecture, ruins, and for the past few years a lot of wildlife photography. But I think my favorite (and most under-represented) has always been sports. Whether photographing kid's soccer and basketball games or motorsports such as motorcycle or auto racing, I love the excitement of running back and forth beside the...

The Places I’ve Been, The Things I’ve Seen
With COVID-19 pretty much canceling our usual late spring/early summer travels, I decided to put together a list of the places I've been and the things I've seen between 1989 and today. Unlike my "30 Years of Photography" series that showcased the evolution of my photos, this is a simple listing of some of the places I've been, the trips I've taken, and the things I've seen since moving out on my own. This is...

The Way I See Things

I am a Fine Art Photographer, an Explorer and Photon Collector with an eclectic TWIST on how I see the textures and patterns that make up our world. I travel both to distant lands and to my own backyard in search of inspiring sights whose reflected light I capture. I see the beauty in both the nature within a National Park and the graffiti covered ruins on Route 66; in the towers of New York and the meadows of rural California. I seek cockatoos in the wild and cows on the farm. I bring details close with a telephoto lens and see a whole scene through a fisheye that shows nearly 100° of view. I stand on rooftops. I lie on my belly.

I share The Way I See Things with you.

The Way Things Started

I grew up in Los Osos, California, located in possibly the most beautiful place in the United States to live – San Luis Obispo County. Ever since I could drive a car my main form of entertainment has been to go exploring – whether the local area, the western United States, or an occasional trip back east to North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding areas.

At around the same time I got my first car I inherited my first camera from my brother, an Aires Viscount 35mm rangefinder from 1959. I carried it everywhere, and it was with this camera that I set out on my first long road trip: California to Denver with a flight out to North Carolina and back. I returned with thirteen rolls of 36 exposures – a whopping 468 frames (more if you remember that you could usually coax an extra frame or two out of those rolls.).

That was back in 1989. Since then I’ve upgraded my camera and lens many times and have expanded my modes of transportation to trains and cruise ships, and even an occasional plane ride (to get me to and from a train, cruise ship, or rental car.) And, of course, I’m still wearing out my cars.

Available in your choice of glossy or matte finish and stretched on a wooden frame of 1.5″ x 1.5″ stretcher bars (gallery wrap) or 5/8″ x 5/8″ stretcher bars (museum wrap). All stretched canvases ship within 3 – 4 business days and arrive “ready to hang” with pre-attached hanging wire, mounting hooks, and nails.

Metal Prints

The aluminum sheet is offset from the wall by a 3/4″ thick wooden frame which is attached to the back. Metal prints are extremely durable and lightweight, won’t bend, and are water resistant.

The wooden frame includes a hanging wire for easy mounting on your wall. All metal prints ship within 3 – 4 business days and arrive “ready to hang” with mounting hooks and nails.

Acrylic Prints

Photos are printed directly on the back of a 1/4″ sheet of clear acrylic for a stunning presentation.
