Born in beautiful upstate NY, I have always had a love for the outdoors and the art of discovery. I am in my element when trying to capture the magic of a new place with my camera. Having survived throat cancer in 2013 I believe God has called me to be a witness for Him through the gift of photography. My passion for digital photography is only one of my loves, traveling with my wonderful wife who is my earthly angel, making new friends and eating all kinds of foods are my other passions. My travels have taken me to five continents and numerous countries, with New Zealand being one of my favorite places.
I was introduced to digital photography in 1998 when a friend returned from China and loaned me a point and shoot digital camera. Since then I have been through 8 generations of Canon SLR cameras. My interest in Infrared photography started after taking a class from George Lepp, one of the greatest outdoor photography instructors. There are so many possibilities with Infrared photography, (which is black and white on steroids). I can understand why Ansel Adams was in love with black and white images.
My wife and I are now living in beautiful Mendocino county where there is so much diversity. There is never a lack of things to photograph. Hope you enjoy the photographs and if we are lucky our paths will cross on some mountain trail. God bless you in your endeavors.
