HOW TO PURCHASE
This site is for purchasing unsigned, unlimited editions BUT I invite you to contact me directly via email or phone to purchase signed, limited editions available in various sizes and surface treatments. I use the best quality materials for long lasting images. If you are looking for an image of a specific subject or place, please ask. My inventory of images is much larger than those shown on the web site.
I especially enjoy providing custom orders for homes and businesses and invite direct contact from clients and art consultants. I also enjoy displaying my photos at galleries and special exhibits. Send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 414-530-0326 and be sure to leave a message.
ABOUT MY PHOTOGRAPHY
I love observing God's creation and how people have modified it, instilling in me a passion for travel. Not only do I want to experience life around the world, but to share my vision through photography. I love color since the world is in color, so most of my work is in color.
My photography is not easily described as to theme or style. I love variety and spontaneity in my life which shows in my subject matter. Rarely do I plan to photograph any specific subject. As I wander I am always observing. Using 35 mm cameras and primarily natural light, my "eye" may be attracted to how light is affecting a subject, or to a repetitive pattern or texture. I am captivated by scenes that show contrasts or inconsistencies, and scenes that are simply beautiful. Architecture, decorative detail, and their care capture my attention also.
Although I have had a passion for photography most of my life, I first started marketing my art professionally after retiring from a career in law. Within a year of retirement I was exhibiting (juried and nonjuried exhibitions) and winning awards in state and local camera clubs competitions. I have earned more than 75 medals, plaques, ribbons, awards and inclusion in many juried exhibitions (e.g., Midwest Photo Exhibition, CoPA Juried) and art fairs (e.g., Art Fair on the Square in Madison, Boca Raton Museum of Art Fine Art Fair). In addition, I am honored to have been chosen to judge photo and art competitions and exhibitions.
I completed a two-year course from the New York Institute of Photography earning a Certificate in Professional Photography and the Canon Masters Course and continue to learn through membership in photography organizations.
I enjoy working with clients, using the best quality materials, to provide limited edition art appropriate for health care facilities and corporate offices as well as residences. I also accept location assignments and grant licenses for use in publications.
