I am a passionate person about whatever I am doing…be it journalism, art concepts, family and friends, tending the farm, camping and so on…and the list is large! I am curious and creative. I can say that for the last 30 years I have made my living doing photography. I am grateful for all the assignments…they have sustained my life to date. I love telling a story with my camera. I say this humbly but I think I have been given an extra sense about things and how to share and translate a soul or place in one image or more.
