Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.

As far back as I can remember I've always had a camera.  In the early days my photos were holiday snaps or taken at family events.  They were memories of people and places to be cherished, but that's where it stopped.  I simply wanted to record the moment and move on.

That changed in September 1997 in Beijing.  I took a quick snap of a Confucius statue, and when I saw the resulting photo I knew I was hooked.  It was at that point that I started seeing photography as art.

It changed the way I look at the world and everything within it; people, places and things.  I've been fortunate to see a lot of the world and meet a lot of wonderful people along the way.  I've seen beauty everywhere; around the world and around the block.  Sometimes that beauty lasts for just a brief moment in time...but with a camera, I can make it last forever.

The photos on this web site are, in my opinion, the best the I have taken.  I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I have enjoyed taking them.

We don’t make a photograph just with a camera; we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, the people we have loved.
