My love for photography began as a boy when I was taught the basics by my father. During a tour of duty in Vietnam, I purchased an expensive Nikon SLR camera and dreamed of becoming a photographer when I returned home. A family of my own and a new career put that dream on hold, however I have always enjoyed taking photographs. Several years ago, after surviving another kind of war with cancer, I began to really see the beauty in our world. Equipped with a new awareness of life, ability to travel and a significantly improved artistic vision through my camera lens, I am now able to find beautiful scenes almost everywhere.
In 2006 I began selling my photographs locally, then later in 2009 I established my online galleries here with Fine Art America. While continuing to travel, improve techniques and add to my ever-increasing inventory, my art has now been purchased by collectors in the majority of our 50 states as well as those in several other countries around the world. Although I am no longer a young man, my passion for this art form grows and I will continue to create and share my art with others for as long as possible.
