Photography is my hobby…not my job.


That is what I like to tell people. I believe if I continue to keep photography as my hobby, and treat it as such, then I will never grow tired of taking photos. I have been taking photos all my life, since I was 7 years old.  While my real passion is landscapes and wildlife photography, photographing people and activities for my High School Yearbook was how I got my “professional” start in photography.

A few years ago, I started to photograph weddings, family and senior portraits, business portraits and some modeling. I enjoy working with people and have the patience (and sense of humor) to let people get comfortable with me so they will enjoy the work as much as I do. (Please visit my Portrait Photography website:  Since landscapes are my passion, I prefer to take portraits outdoors in a more realistic natural setting with real light and shadows.

Currently, I am retired from the State of Washington but, I still do some consulting work, and I am available to take portraits or photograph weddings and events. But, my passion remains landscape and wildlife photography and I continually look forward to the next opportunity to get outside and capture that early morning sunrise, the changing climatic and seasonal colors, Earth’s wonders, and the wildlife living around us.

I hope you enjoy these few photos posted on this website.
