The Short Story:
I am an Omaha, NE based Photographer who loves to
photograph Landscapes, Cityscapes, Architecture, Wildlife,
and Railroads. I strive to show every subject in its best light.
The Long Story:
I was born and raised in Omaha, NE. As my senior year
approached at Westside High School I needed one more
class for fill out my schedule. I took about every art and
architecture class the school offered except for
photography, so I gave photography a shot. After
graduation, I decide to continue studying photography in
college. The photography course work in college was
heavy on portrait photography and I wasn’t interested in
portrait photography this led me to pursue other
After almost ten years, I really wanted to get back in
photography again. I went out one afternoon and
purchased a new Canon Digital Camera, and the rest is
I work full time as a Civil Engineering Tech. and
photography is an ever growing small business. It would be
great to be a full time Photographer some day, I have
chosen to grow my business slow and steady through
quality work and long lasting relationships.
I learned photography using film cameras (35mm, Medium
Format, and 4X5 Large Format). Learning on film was an
awesome exposure that I am really glad I was able to
experience. Spending time in the darkroom exposing a
print, seeing your image appear before you in the
developer is like no other. Today I shoot digital photos.
While playing around in the dark room is more enjoyable
than sitting at a computer, the time and expense just
doesn't make it worth it. My weapon of choice today is a
Canon 5D mk3. It is my third digital camera I since going all
I have an appreciation for art of all kinds. I look at
photography with a completely open mind. Through my
studies one of the first thing is learned was the meaning of
the word "Photography". Break the word in half. "Photo" &
From the Greek word "phos" which means "light".
Represents something written or represented in the
Put it to together and you get "Writing with Light"
Next time you look at an Artist/Photographer's photo, don't
think of it as just a picture made with a little
device, rather think of it as a painting created using light
instead of paint.
Most photographers don't just head out, snap a shot and
call it a day, we spend hours thinking, planning, testing and
waiting for just the perfect light. There are a lot of days we
go home empty handed, but when we get that one shot that
really knocks your socks off, it makes all the time and effort
A lot of photographers brand themselves as “Fine Art
Photography” and people often ask me if mine is “Fine Art”.
By the technical definition, a lot of what is displayed here on
the website would be considered “Fine Art Photography”
but I also do a lot of commission work for commercial
clients. Fine Art Photography is photography done to fulfill
the creative vision of the artists and not a commercial
commission. You can call it whatever you want, my hope is
that you get enjoyment out of seeing my work.
Thanks for checking out my website, if you have not liked

Important Holiday Note:
