Take a photographic journey with me to the land down under...Australia! This was a trip of a lifetime. From Alice Springs at the Red Centre to the monadnock better known as Uluru...and north past the Tropic of Capricorn and through the Barkley Tablelands. My journey took me up the Katherine River into the gorges at Nitmiluk National Park and further north to the wetlands paradise of Kakadu National Park. My Northern Territory adventure ended up in Darwin before flying south to Sydney, New South Wales.
I was born and raised in rural Missouri. I departed after high school and joined the United States Air Force. I spent time at Norton AFB, CA and RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge, England. It was during this time that I became interested in photography at a VERY, VERY, VERY, basic level! Most of my photos were captured with 110 cameras and disposable 35mm cameras. Although I yearned for better equipment, I lacked the knowledge and monetary resources that could take me to the next level. I soon found myself pursuing a B.S.- Geology degree at Northern Arizona University. My photography interests remained...but my skills continued to stagnate! I followed my B.S. Degree with graduate school at the University of Toledo...departing two years later with a M.S. Degree in Geology! I moved to Arizona immediately after graduation. With my education behind me and my career moving forward...I decided to get more involved with photography!
