Background

Although not formally trained in the art of photography, I have been working at my craft for over ten years. Working as a professional photographer has been a serious obsession of mine. I am currently writing articles for Nature Photographer Magazine as well as Hub Pages and I freelance write and photograph for other publications. I have self published two books, “Ohio’s 4 Seasons” and “H20.”

Publications

Magazines include Nature Photographer Magazine, Truth Conscience, Michigan Out-of-Doors, Wyoming Elements and Heart of Ohio Magazine. Images featured on book covers include “Somewhere There’s a Rainbow” by Graydon Horath and “Common Sense” by CG Ferrel. Donated photographs for 2011 Hospice Annual Report.
