Artist Statement

I am a native Californian, born and raised in San Diego, California. I relocated to the Pacific Northwest in the early 1980's, and as a retired Information Technology professional I now devote much of my time practicing the art of photography.

I love the arts, architecture, nature and the outdoors and devote a lot of my spare time photographing natural scenery around me. I am a lifelong student of light, color, and composition and try to use my creative vision to make photographs that are interesting and capture the beauty of the scene or subject. My philosophy is that quality is more important than quantity and strive for excellence, one image at a time.

Thank you for the great feedback, I really appreciate it.
