First, A brief autobiography
Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a camera in my hands. When I was given a 35mm rangefinder camera (similar to today’s point-and-shoot models), I was hooked. I’m fascinated by nature, and as such, photography seems to fit me quite well. I have oftentimes described my love of photography and nature as a quest to capture God’s fingerprints.
For more than 13 years I worked as a professional journalist and photographer. Writing was fun, but photography was what I breathed. I was always trying to find a new way, a new angle, a new vantage point from which to photograph everything from sports to agriculture to news events. Shooting news always provided something interesting to capture when I wasn’t out shooting scenics and nature.
There are photographers out there that I study, whose work I consider great, such as the late Galen Rowell, Gary Crabbe and Mike Jones. And, I’ve found Flickr to be a great place to be inspired by great photographers, as well. Right now I'm preparing to find my own place as a photographer, my own perspective of God's landscape.
