About Me

Thanks for visiting my site.  I'm relatively new to photography spending most of my free time searching out places and things to shoot in  California where I was born and raised. Growing up and living in California has given me a deep appreciation for nature.   I grew up in a family that spent most of their vacations outdoors in wild places.  We camped and we backpacked in some really special places like Yosemite, Sequoia, Lake Tahoe, and the eastern Sierras.  We camped at many of the famous surfing beaches along the southern California coast and we've hiked and crawled around in the eastern deserts like Joshua tree and Death Valley.  

It's my love of the  outdoors that inspired me to get into photography...to bring home via lens and camera the grand sights and memories I see while in the outdoors.  My first love was and still is bird photography.  The challenges of capturing a bird in flight never fails to get my blood pumping.  I am new to landscape photography but enjoy it as much as I do bird photography.  It just takes me away from my family for longer periods of time which is hard.  I am also just starting to learn about the wonders of our solar system through the lens.  Truly otherworldly.  

Please feel free to browse the different galleries and when you're done please sign in to my guest book page.  If you are ever in the area and would like to get together for a shoot please let me know.  You can reach me through my contact page.  

Thanks for stopping by.
