As a landscape and nature photographer, I capture the eloquence of modest environs, often near home, rather than vistas of epic scale. My images explore the balance or the tension, the reassurance or surprise within nature’s complexity. Calm and intimate, this work is warm and harmonious in its realism, whether in color or black-and white, with subtleties of composition that invite prolonged viewing.
My recently published book, Walking Circe, reveals the beauty of Biltmore Lake’s trails, waterways and wildlife. Circe is my canine companion on the daily hikes that give rise to much of my photography.
Biltmore Lake’s foliage and wildlife—the subjects of work shown here—are stunning. Especially captivating is the seasonal variety–the first buds of spring, kayaks on a summer day, outrageous autumn colors, geese on a snowy lake. Hopefully, this book inspires an appreciation for the generous artistry of nature that can be found close at hand.
I am a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley. My career has encompassed editorial and commercial portraiture, architectural and corporate photography, landscape and nature photography. For two decades I taught traditional and digital photography at Santa Monica College, Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design and San Francisco’s Academy of Art University.
