Capturing the beauty and mystery of nature stems from my appreciation of the natural environment. Although I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, my love of the outdoors led me to Boulder, Colorado, where I studied Geography at the University of Colorado.
I have since spent years photographing nature in its magnificence. I use Adobe Photoshop as my main source in producing photographic images. I have found the process of developing them through the digital process not only rewarding but advantageous as well. I have total control over the final image, color correcting and tweaking the photo until I am satisfied with the final outcome.
My photographs have been published in various magazines including Astronomy, Outside, PC Photo, Western Horseman & Caribbean Travel & Life, Sheridan Road, Chicago and North Shore Magazines, various real estate magazines, sold in JC Penny stores and other outlets, used as a backdrop on the set of the Arsenio Hall Show, used as promotional materials for a lighting manufacturer and displayed as artwork in various homes and offices throughout the United States.
The web site has been a wonderful forum to exhibit my work. Awards and features include:
Stock Solution's Top Photo Site of the Week for 11/1/99

Photo Site of the Week from Welcome to My Universe
