I have lived in Burlington, WI my entire life.Throughout that time I have had the opportunity to travel all over the United States, Canada, Mexico and more. What may be surprising is I have always wanted to come back to Burlington. There is something about being here that simply means home. I started taking pictures when I was maybe 6 or 7 with an old Brownie - which I still have. Over time I have used various cameras and put together a pretty nice collection as well. I settled on 35mm for a very long time, and still use it at times today. With my own darkroom, where I can process pretty much any film, I enjoy the freedom and creativity that comes with owning the entire process; from taking the first picture to the final print. Even today I still enjoy using film, especially for those B&W projects. Digital, however, has moved into the forefront now representing the majority of my Studio based work.
Although I must confess, I still enjoy spending an afternoon/evening/weekend 'playing' in my darkroom. Whether the images are on film or digital there is great joy in the creation and presentation of my work and none greater than to see the pleasure showing on the faces of my clients when they see their ideas have become reality. So, please, take some time and look through the samples of my work - many of the Nature and Art images are available for purchase and are only a small selection of over 30 years worth of film. If you have the need for a photographer, for a family portrait, a wedding or that unusual project just let me know and I will be happy to figure out the best way we can work together and create the images you have in mind.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your visit.
