I've been making photos off and on since the 1970's...I've always seemed to have a crayon, pencil, paintbrush or camera in my hand for as long as I can remember! Digital technology has allowed me to merge traditional art media and photography to express my artisitic vision easily.
I shoot Nikon DSLRs primarily but I do have and use other cameras as well. I try to always carry a camera with me wherever I go and have been rewarded with great shots even when only armed with a point-and-shoot or iPhone.
I don't want my photos to look like everybodyelse's photos! I am continually striving to be more "painterly" with my photography...I seem drawn to long exposures, intentional camera movement, texture overlays and creative post-processing.
Isle Royale...In a state filled with beautiful places, Isle Royale is in a class of its own!
I enjoy modest hiking and kayaking...There are so many beautiful spots to see in this state, even more so if you're willing to venture off the beaten path!
Hi! I'm a Michigan-based nature photographer.
