It all began on a snowy day in an Illinois cornfield shortly after I entered college after serving in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War. Two shots rang out from my 12 guage shotgun and a beautiful male ring-necked pheasant dropped lifeless out of the sky into the fresh snow. I went home disguested with myself for having shot this magnificent bird. Shortly thereafter, I sold my gun collection and went into Chicago and bought my first Nikon 35mm SLR film camera. And as they say, the rest is history.
In 1987, I moved back to my roots in New England and have been in Maine ever since. I have run the gammut in photography and have used 35mm, 6cm x 6cm Hasselbald and Rollei cameras and finally my very favorite Arca Swiss view camera. In 2006, I went completely digital and now shoot Canon DSLR's exclusively. My bird and landscape images have appeared in many Down East and Brown Trout calendars over the years. I have sold hundreds of fine art landscape images in galleries across the country. When time permits, I travel to Vermont in the fall and winter to shoot landscapes.
In 2000 my wife and I moved to Westbrook, Maine and I began pursuing my interest in architectural photography. Since that time I have photographed many interiors and exteriors in beautiful Maine homes for architects, custom home builders, interior designers and national paint companies.
