“I have always been intrigued by photography and its ability to capture a moment or place in time, that in today’s world could last forever. I started taking photography more seriously in 2010 when I purchased my first DSLR camera. I took an online 12 module course from The Photography Institute in 2011 and earned my photography degree on October 18, 2012. This course taught me camera and composition basics that helped get me started in the right direction.

I tried many styles of photography in the beginning, I quickly realized that to get good, I had to narrow down my choices to 1 or 2 styles. My passion for the outdoors easily brought me to the conclusion that nature and landscape would be high on my list. Most of my work is done locally or in Northern Minnesota and Wisconsin.

In many of my images I want the viewer to feel a sense of adventure and physical presence. The use of wide angle lens and composition techniques gives the viewer the feeling of literally being near me while taking the photograph.

My second choice and strong runner-up in photography styles is the automotive and motorsports field. I was introduced to cars at a very young age, as my father was a mechanic and auto body refinisher. I quickly came to appreciate the design and performance capabilities of cars and motorcycles. The challenging aspects of photographing a vintage automobile in the setting sun, to “panning” a high performance race car around a dirt track is second to none.

I want to thank you for viewing my photographs, they have been a pleasure to make and I hope you enjoy them.”
