Hello and welcome to my website, My website is the place where I share my photography and have a nice gallery setup to show you if your interested. I also have a blog that I use to write about a photo shoot, or something this going on with me. I also have a blog that I use to make light of a photo that I like from some random photographer. I also use my spotlight section to shine a light on a product, service or anything else for that matter. I am also using this site for my resume and to show off some of the other websites that I have built. Click here to read more about me.

My Photography

I started my journey into photography around 2001, and have had a lot of fun behind the camera since. I enjoy shooting landscapes, waterfalls and flowers. I also enjoy taking intimate shots of cars with flash. Lightning is probably my favorite thing to shoot. Sadly I have not been behind the camera nearly enough in the last few years. Check out the rest of my gallery . Click here to view photo gallery.

Latest Photo's

Christopher, Bradley and I went for a little walk yesterday. I decided to take the camera along just in case I found something cool to shoot. Turns out, that it was Chris and Bradley that became the subject for my Canon. All I had was my 180mm macro lens, I had to stand far off to capture the two of them, but they turned out pretty cool.

Chris and I took a trip to Leslie Gulch, we were both struck with awe at the beauty there. The camera does not do justice to the scenery, but I tried anyway.

I met up with my old shooting partner Rick, we went on a little exploring trip up into the mountains. We managed to find a few cool places where we could fire our Canon's. It was good to see Rick again and get out of the city.

My World Blog

I use this section of my Site to blog about various things. I might talk about a photo shoot that I went on, or make a comment about something I have seen or thought about. I might even go on a rant about something. Just an all around place to write stuff.

Three Stooges

I just love this picture of these three little fellas. I can only imagine the conversation they are having, if only I could understand chirps. We might be surprised that they chirp about the same ole things that we do, wouldn't the be interesting. Well if they pass that bill, there will be less
