About the Book
I volunteered to capture images for the Minnesota Wing Commemorative Air Force and to author a photo-book that they could use as a “Thank You” gift to those who contribute a given amount for the preservation and support of their efforts. It is impossible to be around the many volunteers who contribute their time and effort to maintain, fly and exhibit these irreplaceable icons of our American “flying” history without catching the enthusiasm and spirit of their dedication. Having the opportunity to “touch and feel” these frail yet mighty flying machines as I photographed their interiors and exteriors was a dream come true. Yes, my passion is photography; but when you are exposed to these wonderfull ships of the air and their support staff you could easily consider changing or expanding your choice of passion(s). Enjoy the book and let yourself dream a little!
I incorporated in 1990 to author corporate presentations via digital illustration and animation. I also was called upon to do corporate product photography. My love for the water and nature started me on a long journey of wildlife and nature photography. I thought about doing “people” but with the current release form requirements it is pretty hard doing candid shots so I turned to architecture and that has really been rewarding. Several of my current photo-books have been commissions; and I have to tell you it is very nice being paid for your passion. God is so good!
