The images in my galleries are an extension of my work in the media arts and is the manifestation of a vision that is part of my life in northern Minnesota.  Although each place I’ve lived has offered its own unique photographic possibilities, living in northern Minnesota, with its seasonal changes, Lake Superior, the forests and vast acres of water, both still and flowing, inspires me on a moment to moment basis.  It is a fantastic world in which to wander with a camera and eyes wide open.

Give me a camera, or two, or three, (I usually carry at least two, often three or four, as each has different capabilities), and I will entertain myself for hours and hours. I will will spend endless more hours in post production after a long day of shooting, always looking for what I may not have seen in the field, or perhaps thought I saw and captured it for later analysis. Often my mind sees what my eyes miss, only to be discovered in post.
Sometimes that is the “Seeing Beyond Seeing”.

This method of seeing also applies to my professional work.  My experience with various types of photography has strengthened each of the styles I shoot.
