Welcome to my photography website. Inherently, I am a planner which explains how I came to spend most of my working life in left brain roles such as IT and Project Management and in the process achieved PMP certification, a globally recognized certification for project managers. I demonstrated acumen for those types of roles primarily in the Financial Services industry.
However, underneath there was also had a creative side, which emerged briefly in elementary school when I played in the school band. That creativity has reemerged over the past 14 years through photography. Photography has allowed me to leverage my planning and organizational skills while being ever vigilant and open to the unplanned and creative process.
I am a photographer and Photoshop enthusiast formerly of Lisle, Illinois and now residing in McCordsville, Indiana. Photography subjects include aircraft, landscape, waterfalls, lighthouses, and wildlife. My goal is to create a rich representation of how I “see” the scene. I find it immensely rewarding and gratifying to perform all aspects of the process from capture to post processing to final presentation.
I am attracted in particular to the beauty and expanse of the Northwoods of the Upper Midwest Region of the U.S. and have produced award winning photos of lighthouses and roaring waterfalls from that area.
For inspiration I follow Scott Kelby, Corey Barker, Rick Sammon, Brian Matiash, Glyn Dewis, Gary Gough, Matt Kloskowski, Joel Grimes, Adam Gibbs, Thomas Heaton, and others.
I have subscribed to KelbyOne for over 13 years drawing the majority of my initial and ongoing training from them to keep current with both photography and post processing techniques.
Gear & Software: Currently shooting a Canon EOS 5D MK4, Tokina 16-28mm, Tamron 24-70mm and 100-400mm glass. Software includes Lightroom Classic, Adobe Photoshop 2023, and plug-ins from DxO Nik Collection and Topaz.
Thank you for your visit.
