It seems that all his life, he had a camera close to hand. From childhood in eastern Oklahoma to military duty to making a life as an adult, he always had a camera near to record life’s events and people and travels. However, photography was not who he was; it was only something he did…Until nearly 35 years ago, when he purchased a new camera and lens in preparation for his son’s birth. But that camera soon became an extension of his hand, then his arm, then his eye; finally, it became an extension of his heart. Photography became his greatest passion, and it defined who he was. It still does.
Landscapes, wildlife, and closeup views of small and intimate scenes, all provide joy and gratitude as he attempts to create photographic art of his discoveries and special moments.
Photography is more than the technical, mechanical means of making the exposure; there is also the passion, and the artist photographer intends that the viewer should see his emotional connection to the subject.
Photography is all about passion.
