How long have you been interested in photography?

I've been photographing since childhood. As a forester and as an archaeologist, my camera was a tool of my trade; I used it to record landscapes, plants, stone tools. After graduating with a degree in photography, my camera has become more of a paintbrush to me. I use it to create fine art imagery.

What kind of camera do you use? (DSLR, point-and-shoot, make, etc...)

I use several types of cameras. Each has its strengths. Among them are a Canon G1X, a Canon IDS Mark III, and my iPhone.

How do you want to grow as a photographer this year?

I plan to produce photographs as part of specific projects. Each will take the form of a portfolio. Some may be published as books.

If you could pick one spot in the state of Michigan to spend a few days making photographs, where would that be?

South shore of Lake Superior, perhaps between the Sault and Taquamenon Falls.

Do you enjoy hiking, kayaking and camping?

I definitely enjoy all three of those.


I have worked as a forester, archaeologist, professor, and photographer. I am trained in the study of landscapes. My photographic interest revolves around close ups and abstractions, focusing on forms, patterns, and play of light on surfaces.
