Photograpy has been a  hobby since college but took on new meaning with the arrival of the digital age. In 2001 my first digital camera was a pocket Kodak camera.  Discovering the benefits of digital images i quickly progressed to an interchangeable lens system with a Canon EOS 10D in 2004, beginning a long and continuing relationship with Canon. In 2006 I aquired my first copy of Photoshop CS2 and attened my first photo workshop in Yellowstone National Park. It was then that the passion for outdoor and landscaspe photography caught fire! The rest they say is history. On this web site you will find a varied collection of photos from my travels around the county and around the world.
