My photography began when I was about eight years old. My brothers and I would pretend to be professional photographers living in Chicago. Everywhere we went we had our little kodak Instamatic and Polaroid cameras in tow. We took hundreds of shots at the old White Sox, Comiskey Ball Park, Lincoln Park Zoo, and many of the museums. It wasn’t until I was a college student that I began using a 35 mm camera. Unfortunately, the camera came without the instructions and it was all manual. I spent years teaching myself how to use it.
In the middle 1990’s I began exhibiting my photographs. Having won a few photo contests, I began to sell my Nature and Wildlife photographs. My cameras have taken me to 43 of the United States which also includes Alaska. I have taken photographs in 7 of the 10 Canadian Provinces leading me from the east coast from Nova Scotia across Canada to Vancouver, British Columbia.
My most recent photo adventure was in the spring of 2013. My wife Dee Anne and I trekked to the base camp of Mount Everest, in Nepal. This has been one of my most intriguing locations for photography.
