About Me

My photo

Opened my first Studio in 1972, after graduating with my Masters Degree in Photography, which followed a B.F.A. from Missouri State. It's been a great career that has taken me all over the world on assignments, and I've had the pleasure of working for some of the finest companies on product, annual report, and commercial assignments.

I spent one month in The Peoples Republic of China in 1987 representing Eastman Kodak
and their film capabilities to the Chinese professionals. In 1990 I documented the retrieval of Japanese Hostages held by the Iraqi's in Baghdad just before Desert Storm by the American Group called "Peace Wave".

I have also had the distinct pleasure of meeting some of the finest people from all walks of life due to my profession. I love my work personal imagery.

Floating Clouds...Anchored Rock......

In southwestern Oklahoma there are the remains of huge mountains that rose millions of years ago and have now dwindled in size leaving an incredible variance of formations. While traveling through the area recently I was struck by the variations of the land forms and quite frankly the amount of water in the lakes and streams. The rocks are mainly granite with some sandstone town in for "effect" and color variation. The fields appear to mainly grow rocks of all sizes and they are abundant where ever you look.

The force of the pressure that sent the mountains upward is visible in the angles of the huge slabs that support the whole pile. The color is typical Oklahoma red...aka after a few centuries..."Red Dirt". I guess the total palate could be boiled down to, as far as the rocks are concerned, red, grey, and black.
Mind you that these are not small rocks, they are huge boulders and slabs everywhere you look. From a distance the Mountains appear to be touching the sky. I caught a few shots and I'll show you some today and a few more tomorrow.
