On my birthday in 1985 I received my first SLR 35mm camera, and holding it in my hands created an exciting energy. After shooting my first few rolls of film and then going through those prints I realized that I loved the
art of photography... Thus started my dream of becoming a photographer!
At that time I was busy raising a family but I was still able to get out with my camera, capturing nature’s images on camping trips and cross-country vacations. In the later part of 1988 I decided that photographing images just was not enough...I wanted to also create the finished products so I embarked on a career in the photo-finishing industry, working in custom color labs. During this time I learned and enjoyed the pleasure of creating an image. Not only the taking of that image, but also developing the film, and the process of fine tuning the final print in the darkroom....I learned to create magic! The magic of creating an image, which along with the traditional darkroom techniques, now includes today's
digital technologies.This new technology requires a knowledge of computers, scanners and printers. This
technology opens up new adventures and challenges.
In 1997 Bob walked in the front door of the lab I was working at and we became partners in photographic adventures, and soon after that partners in life. We started on the road to fulfilling our mutual dreams of photographing nature’s beauty.
Although I love to photograph every aspect of the natural world around us, I have an intense joy for portraying the fleeting beauty of flowers; my speciality being macro floral imagery. Getting up close
and personal with only a portion of a flower gives me some very unique perspectives...I can achieve a
playful image, a sensual image or an image of another dimension! Photography for me is a way to capture the beauty of the natural wonders this earth has to offer. Whether it’s a sweeping vista of a field of wildflowers, or the delicacy of a single flower petal. Our many adventures have given me a vast palette of colors, shapes, textures and beauty to photograph.
It is my sincere desire to provide you, my customer with fine art photography that you will enjoy for many
years to come.
Thank you for taking the time to view my work…
