Hi there and thanks for dropping by!

The 2014 Show Season has just passed its mid point and I have been traversing the US toting my images to many new places and many favourites. This year will see my images at art festivals on the East Coast, with shows in Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey!

While traveling across this vast land, I have managed to make a few stops along the way to photograph some forgotten places.


I have always been intrigued by abandoned things, be it an old car, the peeling paint and parched wood of a door, or the crumbling walls of a decaying building. To see the natural reclamation of these 'discarded' things can be beautiful, sorrowful, scary...sometimes all at once. Oh, the stories these things could tell

Regardless of what the image is, abandoned places always stir a reaction. An emotion. Some kind of feeling. It certainly affects me that way when I explore them. I will be posting many more images on the site over the course of the next few months, however you can see daily posts on my Facebook page, so be sure to check it out and click LIKE.

Learn about Nikon's space cameras

Have you ever marvelled at the images captured from space? Well, like most folks, I certainly have. Many of those images were captured by the Astronauts themselves using handheld cameras. The cameras they use today are just like the commercially available ones anyone can buy today, but there was a time when cameras needed to be modified a great deal to withstand the demands of space travel. As I am an avid Nikon collector, I have acquired a number of Nikon's early space cameras and have built a number of pages on the website that have profiles that explain what makes these cameras so unique.

Whether your a camera buff or a space buff, you'll likely find the section an interesting read!

The Building Blocks of Photography

My 4 week course on the Building Blocks of Photography will be returning next January. Watch my Classes / Workshops page for when the next course will be scheduled.

Don't forget to check out my Exhibitions page for an up to date listing of all the art festivals I will be at this year. Confirmations for shows will continue to follow over the next few months, so be sure to check back often.

I hope to see you at one of the shows!

Have an art or photo club and need a speaker?

Contact me as I do a lecture on cameras used in Space, as well as one on tips to improve your photography. Both are powerpoint presentations that last about 1-2 hours in length!

Need a mentor for improving your photo skills?

I have over 30 years experience in shooting with single lens reflex (SLR) cameras and my work has appeared in publications all over North America. I am an old school guy that learned from the ground up where the goal was to make the image perfect in the camera as opposed to taking average photos and 'fixing' them on the computer. If you want a better understanding of your camera's controls, and how to put the technical know how to work in making great images, then contact me. I provide one on one training that is customized to you.

A 3 hour customized mentoring program is available for $299
