Thank you for visiting today!
In my photography, I like to capture a "sense of place," so that through my images I can transport people to where I've been. I look at the world as a giant never-ending photographic opportunity. I could be anywhere: the local garbage dump, a state park, or in a neighborhood of beautiful homes. I see interesting images every-where. I often notice what is unnoticeable to many and I like to share those images with others.
I started taking pictures as a hobby, with a film camera, in junior high school and turned professional in 1968. I like to think I'm 48 years young. The fact is I am a Baby Boomer: a proud offspring of the Greatest Generation.
I had a portrait studio in my hometown, Mount Union, before moving to Lewistown. In addition to photos for fine art, I also do headshots, creative portraits, travel and stock photography. In my spare time I write travel articles, short stories, and poetry (usually goofy, sometimes serious), which you can find on my Fun Stuff page.
Life is an adventure. There is always something to see and photograph, someone to visit, something to do, somewhere to eat; and as long as I'm alive and able, I will always be on the go.
"Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity.
We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.
Let us use it before it is too late." --Marie Beyon Ray
