I am a travel photographer with a love of history and the urge to venture off the beaten path. The history and legacy of the American West is a central theme. Also ancient civilizations around the world, and the monuments they left behind fascinate me.
The camera is a tool to record what I see and feel about a location. It captures a split second in time, a mood, a glance or gesture; something that resonates with me. All that affects my interpretation of the scene. Color, sepia, or duo-tone are all possible treatments. I am now delving into digital painting on some of my photos. This can give a looser, more stylized look to these images. The final print may be on paper, canvas, metal, or even wood.
A good selection of my work can be found at the Yaquina Art Center in Newport, Oregon. Nearby the Shilo Resort also has a display of my Oregon Coast images.
