I grew up in a tiny southern Illinois town, more years ago than I care to say. While in high school, a friend of mine received a darkroom kit for Christmas. He didn't have a place for a darkroom so I volunteered a small room in my parents' basement. He soon lost interest... I didn't.
Graduation, marriage, kids... I installed a darkroom in every home for the next twenty-or-so years. For a time, my interest waned, but about seven years ago, when the digital revolution really began picking up steam, the love-affair with my camera was rekindled. I love the digital darkroom and enjoy that process almost as much as the field work.
Many types of photography appeal to me, but the natural world - landscapes, wildlife, macro - moves me. Success for me is when a viewer of one of my photos says "I wish I was there" or when another photographer remarks "I wish I'd done that".
I hope you find enjoyment in my images.
