I started shooting taking family photos so I wouldn't have to be in them. I grew up reading Life Magazine and National Geographic. I didn't really know which photographers I liked the best but I studied the photos intensely. I became interested in my own shooting while in Vietnam. After four years in the Air Force, I earned an AA degree in Photography studying under Bert Brink at Bakersfield College. While attending school, I worked part time printing B&W for a local studio in Bakersfield, California. That worked into shooting studio, weddings, portraits, and working in the office. In 1981, we moved to a small piece of land in North Central Arkansas and I did some freelance work there. Eventually, I pretty much left photography. In 1989, we moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas to attend the University of Arkansas where I got a BA in Education. I began to start taking photographs in the mid-90's. Since then, I have become very seriously shooting mostly landscapes and nature. I also enjoy motor-sport and aviation photography. I am a member of the Pentax Discuss Mail List, and have contributed to both of the PDML annuals. I was selected as one of the exhibitors in the Augenblick a moment in time exhibition at the Scharpenberg Gallery in Chicago. I have had many local exhibitions in Fayetteville as well as collaborating with my wife on a self published, on demand book, Two Views, published by Blurb. I am a member of the Photographic Society of Northwest Arkansas.
