“The decisive moment, it is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as the precise organization of forms which gives that event its proper expression.”

~Henri Cartier-Bresson

I have lived in Colorado my whole life and have always had a fascination with the outdoors. Its distinctive and diverse landscape has provided the backdrop for my passion, photography. The source of my inspiration has been the vast expanse of the western landscape, its abundant wildlife and the historical heritage that have made this part of the country such a great place to live. I have spent many hours studying wildlife and the landscapes and like the challenge of bringing together the necessary elements of light and composition to capture the essence and character of my subject.


In 1978, I received my first camera as a high-school graduation gift. Over the next few years, I worked on honing my skills and enrolled in fine arts photography courses at the University of Colorado at Denver. I have also attended many workshops and seminars over the years. After a long hiatus and with a renewed enthusiasm, I purchased a digital camera in 2007 and have since been working to improve my craft.


My hope is to capture and collect images that express the essence of nature and share my vision to inspire others to venture out and appreciate what Colorado and the region have to offer. I am an advocate in the promotion and preservation of public lands, natural resources and historic heritage and strive to express that through my images. My goal is to help people connect with the natural world.
