I am from Albuquerque, New Mexico and spend many hours each week immersed in photography of all sorts. I am not a fast photographer generally. I like to take my time and immerse myself in my subject, which is why I am partial to landscape, still life and portraiture. I have been a lover of photography for as long as I can remember, although life’s intrusions caused me to give up the practice for many years. I returned to photography several years ago and am equally excited about digital as well as film photography.
I love bird and wildlife photography, but feel that I am still many years away from being accomplished. However the joy of being around birds and wildlife keeps me coming back, studying, learning and improving. There really is nothing like witnessing the dawn fly-out of the Geese or the sunset fly-in of the Cranes at the Bosque Del Apache or Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuges regardless of whether or not you get a good photograph out of it.
I am slowly moving more and more into portrait and headshot photography as well. It is thrilling, and challenging to capture a good photograph of someone, and to experience their joy upon seeing the results. Being an engineer I love the exactness and precision of studio photography. I find that this is rapidly becoming one of my favorite photographic mediums.
