I have been a photographer over 25 years. I started with a Pentax K1000 using black & white film that I processed and printed myself in my own darkroom. I dabbled in color printing but that proved to be more labor intensive and costly than I had thought. In 2000, I switched to digital when I got an Olympus C-2020Z. In 2003 I got a Canon Digital SLR and my interest in photography was reborn. Over the
last two years, I have been refining my craft with the experience of the past and the knowledge of the digital format. I primarily work in the studio doing portraits, still life and macro work although my real love is out in the field shooting wildlife. I currently use a Canon 1D MkII Digital SLR as my only camera body with a variety of lenses.
I am an active duty Coast Guard Officer and am currently assigned to the Coast Guard Operations Center. I am married to my wife Jill and have two children, Andrew 11 and Heather 9.
