About

Hello and thank you for stopping by to see my photography! 

I'm a fine art photographer based in Las Vegas, Nevada.  My interest and experience in photography dates back to when I was a young boy.  I learned how to use a manual film camera alongside my father who himself was a successful photographer and writer.  Growing up, I spent many hours in a traditional "wet" darkroom that we had set up at home.   

Photography for me, and I'm sure for any serious photographer (artist), goes way beyond the equipment or physical act of holding a camera and pressing the shutter release.  The equipment is merely the tool the artist uses to achieve what he sees with his eyes and imagination, which is really what photography is all about, seeing.  

The bottom line is this...I love the art of photography; I consider myself a bit of a "photographic generalist" at heart, preferring to photograph whatever catches my eye, rather than limiting myself to a specific genre.  I get out and shoot as often as I can, and I'm gradually getting closer to shooting full time for a living. 

There are many incredibly talented photographers out there both past and present, many of whom I've drawn lots of inspiration from over the years.  Some of my favorites are...Jay Maisel, Burt Glinn, Ernst Haas, David Hume Kennerly, Steve McCurry and Ansel Adams to name a few.

Lastly, most of my images are available for purchase as a "loose" fine art print, canvas wrap, acrylic face mount, and a metal print option.  Most are available for commercial use as well.  Please see my prints/info section for more details.  

Again, thank you for visiting and be sure to check back often, as I am continually adding new images.
