Speaker – Judge – Educator
Photography is my way of sharing with others how I see the world around me and provides me with an artistic escape from my day job as an aerospace engineer. My photos are mainly from adventures traveling the US and hiking in various parks, where I enjoy the challenge of finding interesting shapes and juxtapositions in nature and making the most of situations I discover.
I find that the little scenes often overlooked by others are the ones that fuel my photographic creativity. I am always looking beyond the obvious and photographing the things that others might not even notice like an acorn sprouting, the patterns made by rust and faded paint on an old automobile, or textures in the windblown sand on a local beach. Sometimes the most amazing images are right there under your feet.
I enjoy teaching others and sharing my passion and I am available to speak or judge at your camera club. I have been praised for my constructive critiques and ability to tailor my feedback to different levels of photographers.
I grew up in Maryland, where I was a regular speaker, judge and critique leader at camera clubs in that area and still work with many of those clubs virtually. Now that I live in Colorado, I also speak and judge at clubs in the greater Denver area. See my Camera Club Presentations page for descriptions of presentations I have given at clubs in the past.
