I was born in the wild hills of West Virginia, raised in western Maryland and currently live in north central Pennsylvania, USA. My higher education includes Theological Studies, Electronics Engineering, Audio Engineering and Visual Arts. I taught a Media course at Pennsylvania College of Technology (Penn State Affiliate). Photography has been an integral part of my life since the mid 1960's.
Capturing the beauty and complexity of nature is my main interest, from macro close-ups to wide vistas views ...and everything in between. Natural waterfalls are the most frequent photographic subjects found at the business end of my lens. Historic Covered Bridges and farmland scenes are also very close to my heart, but any visually interesting subject could be added to my ever-expanding portfolio.
I have a special interest in long-term photography projects, like my recently completed Gallery titled “The Waterfalls of Ricketts Glen, In Every Season”. I have captured every one of the named waterfalls in Ricketts Glen State Park, to show how different they appear in each of the four seasons in Pennsylvania. It required many visits over several years to record acceptable images that represent each season’s unique view of every waterfall in the glen.
Other similar projects include “The Forgotten Farmhouse” and "Covered Bridges of Pennsylvania".
I do hope you will enjoy my photographs …and allow the images to transport you to all of the places that I love the most. Great care has been taken to insure that these images will look wonderful in your home or as unique greeting cards. Your purchases of my work are always very deeply appreciated.
