Image of author
Hi there!

I am a father, husband, photographer, and a database and software developer. Growing up in Minnesota, I enjoyed swimming in the lakes and exploring the forests and small towns. I have two adult children (Alex and Jacqui), and a beautiful and intelligent wife (Sandi). My main hobby is photography which I’ve been enjoying since 2006. I also love listening to music, walking in the woods and traveling with Sandi.

I truly enjoy many types of art and have been influenced by many of the modern artists including, Georgia O’Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, Ansel Adams and Annie Leibovitz to name a few. I look for ways to simplify my photography while also trying to truly “see” the world around me. I’m always open to sharing ideas and time with fellow photographers and artists.

I hope you enjoy my work and please share your comments.

Photography Scavenger Hunt

One thing that has helped me become a better artist (with my camera) is the Photography Scavenger Hunt . This group of wonderful photographers gets together online every couple of months to share their creations from a list of given Hunt words. The Hunt is currently on round 34 and I have participated since round 2 (It’s hard to stop!). I have met many of these scavengers in person, first local folks then later by going to their yearly meetup. Everyone in the group is passionate about photography and willing to share and help newcomers as well as veterans. A very welcoming group and tons of fun! If you are a photographer of any level you can play along. We use all kinds of cameras from our phone shots to pro cameras. All photographers are welcome! This is the sweetest, goofiest, most helpful group of people around. So don't be shy, you know you want to join us. The Famous "Photography Scavenger Hunt" sign-up will be here before you know it!

1998 Honda Prelude

I haven't taken any toy car pictures for a while, so here is one of my latest purchases, a Hot Wheels Car Culture 1998 Honda Prelude. I actually remember when I first saw one of these cars in real life, I thought it was a really cool car (at the time). I find it very enjoyable to collect these little gems and relive the past.
