About

Sunset at Sleeping Bear Point, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Michigan

Photography is a passion. Photography is more than just trying to take the perfect picture. There is no perfect re-creation of nature. My passion is fueled by being in nature - the peace and quiet, fresh air, amazing scenery, unpredictable weather and unplanned wildlife encounters.

My focus is landscape photography. I thrive on researching locations, scouting scenes and selecting the time of day, lighting and weather conditions to capture nature. My goal is to utilize a single image to photograph the scene using front mounted neutral density filters, graduated filters, color enhancement filters, and polarizers to manage dynamic range, contrast and light. I hope you enjoy my images.
