1999 - 2009

I live in an area that, by most, would be considered desolate, vast, barren and incapable of sustaining life let alone any kind of beauty. NEVADA.

The name itself conjures up dry, hot, dusty and unforgiving images in ones mind. Allow me to show you my Nevada...the inner depth of beauty that lies within the outer skin of desolation.
It's a land steeped in rich history and diversity; ranchers and cowboys, gold mines, casinos and ghost towns.

I am at home and at peace here ... capturing life, one moment at a time.




** ** UPDATED - SEPTEMBER 2009: MADE THE BIG MOVE FROM NEVADA to MONTANA ** **

IT STARTED ALMOST 30 YEARS AGO. MY DREAM OF BUILDING A LOG CABIN IN MONTANA. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY IT'S BEEN INSIDE ME TO LIVE IN MONTANA ALL THESE YEARS, IT JUST HAS. I ALMOST GAVE UP, NEVADA HAD BECOME VERY SPECIAL TO ME, BUT THOUGHTS OF MONTANA STAYED DEEP INSIDE JUST BIDING IT'S TIME. WHAT WILL THIS MOVE BRING? I DON'T KNOW. I'VE CHANGED IN 30 YEARS...BUT MY LOVE OF EXPLORING AND TRAIPSING THE WILD WILDERNESS REMAINS ... THE MOUNTAINS ARE MY LIFE LINE AND PHOTOGRAPHING THEM MY PASSION.
