My love of photography began at an early age when an aunt gave me a camera for Christmas. I was fascinated and forever hooked on this creative tool. While my professional life has included several different and diverse careers, I have always owned a camera and enjoyed making photographs. Over the years many of my images have been used in a variety of publications, won awards, and continue to be sold as framed enlargements. While I still enjoy photographing people and events, my real love is photographing landscapes, scenic places, waterfalls, cityscapes, architecture, flowers, and wildlife.  The images presented in this portfolio represent a cross section of my award winning work.
