Welcome

Welcome to the online gallery featuring some of my best work. 

I have had a love for photography all my life. I used to play with my parents' cameras all the time. My first camera was a Kodak Disc. Using my father's old SLR camera, I got a true taste of photography in junior high school as a member of the yearbook staff. 

In the late 1990s, I purchased my first SLR camera and learned film photography. I graduated to digital with the purchase of a Fuji Finepix S5100, a "point and shoot" that included a manual mode, where I learned how to adjust my settings. In 2010, I joined a group called the Photographic Society of Northwest Arkansas, which gave me a chance to learn my new Nikon D3000 camera alongside fellow amateur and professional photographers. I have learned more with this group than I ever would have learned on my own. 

As you will discover on this site, my interests are somewhat varied, but I specialize in nature and weather. I do have another special interest — old iron bridges, unique pieces of history that, sadly, are disappearing rapidly from the landscape. I recently showed an exhibit of bridge photos in the Baltz Gallery at PSNWA, and I will show a similar exhibit in July at the Bank of Fayetteville on the downtown Fayetteville Square. 

Over the years, I have had people ask about my photos and how to purchase them. It is for that reason that I have created this site. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years, and I hope you enjoy the images you find here.
