Arts. Action. Animals.

I come from a family of amateur photographers. Both of my parents and most of my uncles had the "eye". My uncle Norman was my true inspiration. He was a true environmental street portrait photographer.

The first camera in my hands was an old Konica, still owned by my niece, Abigail. My first purchase after I got a job at Black's Cameras in 1987 was a used 1976 Canon FTB with a 50mm Canon lens. I still have it.

My digital foray happened early on, but with point and shoot cameras that were of a lower quality. Then my friend and fantastic photographer and teacher Robert Fisher sold me his Canon 40D, with a 24-105 F4 L series Canon lens. That was it. I was home...

While I enjoy studio work in the winter, and love learning about ANYTHING really, I love action, people in action, animals in action, action, action, and action! From MX to Rodeo to a busy performance by a band, that's what it's all about for me. Turning a challenging photography opportunity into a piece of art.

Oh. And Art. I love taking a bunch of pixels, and turning them into a digital painting so that the image is still recognizable, but it's now on the wall as a piece of art.

Thanks for visiting. Thanks for looking. Thanks for buying. Ideally, you should leave here happy. As happy as I am when I take the picture. If that is not the case, let me know, and I promise I'll turn it around.

Better yet, if that is the case, let me know!
