I was born in 1973 near Cleveland, Ohio. I lived near Dallas, Texas for almost 20 years and then moved to Denver, Colorado in 2000. I liked Cleveland, did not like Texas, and love Colorado enough to make it my permanent home for the rest of my life.
My dad is a photographer and I picked up most of what I know from him and the photographers that I met through him. My photographic interests right now are macro, landscape and architecture photography, but I don't limit myself to any particular subject or genre.
Much of the landscape photography that I do is in the Rocky Mountains near my home in Denver. My wife, Dorrie, and I spend time on Vancouver Island in British Columbia every year and I've done a lot of shooting along the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail on the island. Recently I've been doing less landscape and nature photography and more urban photography. The reason for the switch, mainly, is that I spend most of my time in downtown Denver where I work as a software engineer. Walking around downtown with a camera is a great way to spend a lunch hour.
This photoblog is an exercise for me to track the progress of my photography skills, interests and technique over time as well as an opportunity to share a collection of my favorite photos and images. My preferred output is a print, but it's difficult to share printed work with as large an audience as on the web.
