Shooting wildlife in Tanzania

Born and raised in Michigan, I purchased my first good camera while I was in the US Air Force.  I was stationed in Hawaii for three years, and it was there that I discovered that I had a real passion for photography.  During that time, I shot everything I could.  My main focus was the outdoors, but I tried everything from beach scenes to model photography, to what I called "photography for photography's sake".

After returning to Michigan, I built a darkroom and experimented with black & white processing, eventually moving into color work.  Today, I've embraced the latest digital processing techniques to help me produce the most beautiful images I can.

Another passion of mine is travel.  I love to travel, and since I discovered it, I can't get enough of it.  Travel exposes you to things you never could have experienced if you stayed at home.  It broadens your thinking when you see life through the eyes of people with different backgrounds and upbringing.  It can make you feel like a pauper or a king.  You’ll meet people that you’ll never forget and you’ll stand in amazement in front of the most awe-inspiring scenes you never could have imagined.  Most of all, at least for me, it has made me much more appreciative of what I have and how I live.

I'm lucky enough to be able to travel a lot both domestically and internationally. I've visited more than 40 countries where I've enjoyed photographing the landscapes, people, and wildlife I've encountered.  How lucky I am to be able to combine two great passions of mine - travel and photography!

So which is the stronger passion?  A friend of mine once asked me if I travel to photograph, or just photograph my travels.  I've thought a lot about that.  I finally came to the conclusion that - I really don't know the answer to that question.  I also concluded that I don't care what the answer is.  I love both photography and travel.  Combining them is just perfect for me.

When I'm not traveling outside the United States, I'm usually exploring my beautiful Colorado, post processing images from past trips, or writing for travel magazines.

I've lived in Colorado with my wife, kids and grandchildren for over 30 years, and had a home in the mountains near Estes Park before moving to downtown Denver where we reside today.  I love Colorado and can't imagine living anywhere else.
