Photographer Sonoma County
Engineering has been my career; photography has been my passion. I received my first camera when I was twelve and have had one close by ever since. There are days I head out specifically to photograph a subject, but have also found that some of my best shots are because something caught my eye. I love the process of having my imagination take shapes, angles and colors and turn them into a piece of art. I want people to not only enjoy my photography but to take away a bit of wonder from them.
The photos shared with you are representative of some of my different photographic interests. I favor nature and the outdoors of Northern California. I’m always looking for a new road or a new area to explore. I enjoy seeing a story in an old lock, a bridge truss or a fencepost. The abstracts are as I see the image in my mind.
I am currently a member of the Riverfront Gallery in Petaluma, the Oli Gallery in Guerneville, the Artist’s Collaborative Gallery in Old Sacramento, the Vacaville Art Gallery and ArtsBenicia. My work has been exhibited in over a dozen galleries and shows throughout Northern California and has been included in the KVIE Public Television auctions. My work has been selected by the City of Vacaville to be in their Permanent Art Collection. I have also been an exhibitor at the California State Fair’s Photography and Fine Art Photography exhibits. I am a member and former director of the Sierra Camera Club in Sacramento and the Marin Photography Club.
