Profile Information

About Me and My Photography Experience:
I am a retired printer and live among the Redwood trees and near the coast in Northern California. I do some product and portrait photography as well as some graphic design. Having a second career that I love is a blessing. I have been taking photos for over fifty years and shot film for most of my life, but I love what I can do with a digital camera. My images are available at a store in town in the form of prints and cards. I volunteer shooting photos for the local repertory theater and the museum. I love to capture special moments and share those images with other people. It is my belief that a photo should tell a story or interest the viewer in exploring the scene further. I enjoy shooting landscapes because nature presents some very interesting scenes, none to be repeated exactly the same way again.
My Photography Equipment:
Olympus E3
Olympus E300
I have five Zuiko lenses:
12-60mm SWD,
70-300 mm.
50mm, f/2.0 macro
Minolta srT101 film camera
Canon AE1 film camera
Two tripods, one monopod
Studio lights
Back drop
Various lens filters
Adobe Photoshop CS5
Adobe Lightroom 4
A Cokin filter system with three graduated and three solid ND filters

Returning Back 1860's

"Great composition! I love the use of shapes in the shot. Oval in the door, light on the carpet and the oval carpet itself. The window and light on the floor add another dimension. The chair on the right works also. I like the book next to the chair."

the banks of the river......

"Great use of the parallel lines of the river, tree line, grass and fence. The diagonal going from one corner to the other helps make this a good composition."

Log Cabin Window., Picasa3 has it., and a person make it any size and move it around, and can change the density., I don't like using it to much, only it does add drama or mystery I guess, make a so so picture better.

Winner at the county fair

Posted on August 17, 2012 at 11:16am 9 Comments

My photograph of Fernbridge at night. that was shot from the west side, took third place in the professional catagory at this year's county fair. I had it printed on a 16 x 20 inch canvas that was gallery wrapped. My other entry, of a woman in a garden, did not place. It was printed on the same material.

Windfall, the documentary.

Posted on May 26, 2012 at 12:18pm 0 Comments

The documentary film, Windfall, is now available through Netflix. This is an excellent look at the down side of industrial strength wind energy. Everyone seems to look at wind energy as some great answer to our environmental problems. Unfortunately many people are unaware of the problems with this energy source. As the saying goes, "The devil is in the details." This film looks are both sides of the issue and brings the details out in the open. Watch this film and the next time someone tells…


Wind Energy Gone Crazy

Posted on January 10, 2012 at 4:42pm 6 Comments

Last night we saw a documentary film titled, "Windfall" that tells the truth about wind energy. Shell WindEnergy wants to place 25 giant (450 foot tall) industrial wind turbines on the pristine ridge behind our town. The carbon footprint it takes to get these monsters makes me wonder if there is any real advantage. Most of the green energy produced by these things goes into the pockets of the developers in the form of dollars. Habitat will be destroyed and raptors and bats will die in…


Published in San Francisco magazine

Posted on August 25, 2011 at 12:23pm 11 Comments

The Associate Art Director for San Francisco magazine was looking for an image for an article about the America's Cup boat from the 2003 race that is now ported in San Francisco. She saw my photo USA76 on Picture Social and emailed me asking if they could use the photo. I agreed and she agreed to compensate me along with photo credit. The September issue came out and my photo, (cropped to fit the article) was on page 48. The credit was in five point type and buried in the fold at the bottom,… Continue
