Saint Louis, MO


I am a rather ancient in years, but young in vision and passion, photographer. I have been creating images for about 45 years with a rather wide variety of equipment and styles. I now use a full format Canon digital camera that is allowing me to explore the wonderful world that surrounds us and to capture a small bit of the color and beauty that abounds, but just so too often is missed during our busy lives.

My primary area of exploration is the macro world of both flora and fauna, where beauty is hidden in plain view, just at too small of a scale to be clearly viewed and appreciated. . I hope that my efforts in communicating my impressions of this enchanting and amazing environment, where everything diverges from our common experience, is succeeding and I am sharing some portion of the wonder, beauty and awe that nature has bestowed upon us.

Most of my images are available as limited edition, signed and archival giclee prints on 100 percent cotton water color paper. Please contact me through this site for further details.

Thank you for visiting and I hope that you have enjoyed your visit and will return.
