And there is no way I can resist animal shots!

About

LANDSCAPE / NATURE / ARCHITECTURAL


I have been working in photography for more than thirty years, both in color and black and white, previously in the darkroom and now processing digitally.  As an outdoor enthusiast, I concentrate primarily on landscape, nature and architectural photography.  I also take the occasional informal portrait and pet portrait.


My career was in software development.  I retired in 2003 and moved to northern California in 2011, with so many photo opportunities. 

The author P. F. Kluge and publisher XOXOX Press selected one of my photographs for the cover of the book Final Exam and my portraits of Kluge were used on the jacket of his next three books.
