I am an advanced amateur and always learning. I have been capturing, processing, printing and sharing photographs since high school. I am familiar with film formats from 35mm, medium and up to 4X5 inch. Since 2002 I have used almost exclusively digital SLR equipment and I am currently photographing with the Nikon D800 and Nikon lenses. I am using Photoshop CSS, Lightroom and printing on the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 Inkjet printer and using the Windows 8 operating system for my digital workflow. My goal is to share the beauty of the earth with others through the mediums of landscape, travel and nature photography thereby motivating a respect for the beauty of creation and for the care of the earth. Completing a personal project and displaying and advocating my work through a web site, in exhibits and galleries is a part of my plan.
