I have been seriously photographing for over 35 years - mostly in black and white. I was a member of the Photographic Society of Southern Illinois and since 1995 I have been a member of The Texas Photographic Society. In addition to several photography courses at SIU-Carbondale, I have taken workshops from Joe Englander, Dennis Fagan, D.Clarke Evans, Dan Burkholder, Dana Foy, Harvey Stein and Scott Martin. I have photographs in the collection at the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona and in the collections of several departments at the University of Texas. And for at least ten years starting in 2000, my photographs of the University of Texas campus have been featured in the Texas Union calendar.
