Chicago, Illinois, United States of America

Someone once made an observation that all I seemed to photograph were trees and buildings. The two subjects would eventually come to represent different ways of looking and interpreting. For buildings, intricate composition and a rich black and white tonal range combine to impart a timeless quality. But in my trees, look for fewer details, more natural lines, and less obligation to the subject.

In a more literal sense, no description of me is complete without a mention of home in Wichita, Kansas. It's there at Wichita State University that I discovered the allure of photography. Eventually, I found my way to Chicago's Columbia College. Then it was only a matter of time before Chicago's landscape cast it's spell over me. Now, with the city's forms and lines firmly in my vocabulary, I help architects and designers dramatically communicate their projects as well as provide art patrons with inspiring imagery.
