Welcome to my website, where you will find a wide variety of interesting photos that reflect my growing passion in photography. My objective is to create a collection of attractive and unique photography pieces that can be proudly exhibited as fine art.
A native of Roanoke, Virginia, I have resided in the Houston, Texas area for over 35 years. I began pursuing photography as a hobby several years ago, following retirement from a successful career as an IT / project management professional at a major oil company. Since then, photography has become a growing passion. I have found this endeavor to be very relaxing, and it encourages me to explore new places, to continuously look for beauty in my surroundings, to look for unusual views of subjects, and to capture unique / once in a lifetime moments that can be shared later. My key focus is fine art photography, using a wide variety subjects, including landscapes, nature, wildlife, seascapes, antiques, architecture, still life, transportation, cityscapes, historical places, etc.
Continued growth and improvement of my photography skills is my on-going pursuit. I enjoy photography classes and workshops, and I also like reading books to increase my knowledge of various techniques. Currently, I am a member of a number of photography groups in the Houston area (for example, the Houston Photographic Society, the Houston Photographic Study Group, and the Houston Photowalks group). From my involvement in these and other groups, I'm able to continuously improve my technical, creative, and composition skills through regular participation in photo shoots, print competitions, critiques, and portfolio reviews.
Feel free to browse through my fine art portfolio, which contains images of landscapes, historical places, flowers, plants, wildlife, still life, cityscapes, waterways, transportation, and more. And, please come back often, as my offerings will be expanding regularly.
