How I see the world

Every professional photographer has their own unique vision on how the world looks. Some use Black and White or color, some focus on portraits, and some use a style that takes a simple photo and through the use of post-production work turn it into a unique work of art. My focus is on nature, architecture, and travel photography. I try to capture in a photograph what I saw with my eye when the photo was taken. I try to turn each memory to a work of art.

“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”

— Alfred Stieglitz



Who am I?

I have been a photographer for over 45 years, turning professional about 10 years ago. I am an award winning photographer who has had photographs printed in regional and national publications, including the High Plains Journal, and my works can be found in several public and private collections.

My wife Joyce and I have traveled throughout the United States as well as to Italy, Spain, France, Holland, Canada, Ireland, England, and Scotland where I focused on photographing cathedrals and churches as well as other traditional locations. Ordained since 1972 as an Episcopal minister, I am currently assisting at an ELCA Lutheran Church. I have recently retired from education after teaching at several colleges and universities.

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”
