I grew up in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Southern Colorado, near a little town called Weston. My mother was an avid amateur photographer who loved to photograph her family. Her love seems to have rubbed off on me.
I graduated with a BA in Journalism from Colorado State University in 1973 and I worked for the University for a couple of years but I had the urge to learn a lot more about photography.
In 1976, I moved to L.A. to study photography at Art Center College of Design. It was a great time and place for learning, buzzing with experimentation and promise. But there's something about Colorado that drew me back.
For 40 years I was based out of Fort Collins, Colorado. My studio was in an old red brick building which originally housed a neighborhood grocer back in 1912
In 2018 I moved back to my hometown of Weston, CO and semi-retired. Now I do work just for myself. It is very enjoyable just hiking through the local hills with my dogs taking photos of whatever strikes my fancy.
