Like many photographers I developed an affair with a camera at an early age starting with a Kodak, Brownie Automatic, finally graduating on with a series of five 35 mm cameras. The digital point and shoots, and SLR allow me more creative development then I ever conceived possible. The more I learn and make pictures the more I am driven to be creative exploring new ideas to make even better pictures. My goal and vision as an artist is to create objects that stir and inspire the viewer’s mind, to create an emotion and lift up the psyche to higher levels. If action follows, all the better.
Aside from Photography I immersed myself in painting, clay sculptures, wood working and extensive doodling at an early age. Pressing on I became involved in carving, carpentry out of necessity and love, and in business what has been called by Professional Economists , “The State of the Art.” I spent much of the last five decades professionally involved in the construction and electronics industries as a builder, technician and marketer of gadgets, widgets, toys, puters, parts and pieces. And yes, I did own a Radio Shack franchise some time back. This of course led me to consume and sell expensive high end electronics. Seeking an exit plan form the brick and mortar world of retail in the electronics business seven years ago I became involved with audio and video calibration while trying to sell and wind down my retail business. I enjoy this as much as life in my church though the economic downturn and existing economy has put the kabash on some plans. I involve myself in the church choir, and community choral concerts as well. All of this enhances my calling and choice of profession.
Although semi- retired my wife and I still raise Arab horses. We want to travel, visit relatives, and grandchildren. I want to take more pictures and do more carving while enjoying life and making others happy and relaxed through these endeavors. I hope visitors to our gallery and my web site enjoy the portfolio of pictures in their different and expanding genres. They are presented here to allow you time to relax and reflect on your own thoughts, hopes, and dreams. The desire is to enhance your life with others through their presence and placement.
