While I’ve loved photography all my life, there was a time when I let it go. But a couple of decades ago, I rekindled my passion for documenting life through images again and it’s never left. I see life through a viewfinder, whether I have a camera with me or not. Composing photos, thinking about camera settings and releasing the shutter actually helps me remember a scene better. This is because I’m always on the lookout for photos – paying closer attention to the world around me. When I find a subject, I have to study it even if only for a moment before deciding how to best capture what I see.

To this end, I’ve discovered that some images captured with the camera only reach closer to my vision when transformed into Digital Photo Watercolors. I am always expanding my portfolio, and share new images here in blog posts. You can find my images available through the online links here or in person at Open Range Images in Cody, Wyoming or Yellowstone Forever stores in Yellowstone and online.
