About me:

I am a hiker/traveler first, photographer second. I diligently strive to maintain this order of priority. The whole idea behind my photography is to record images of the places to which I travel and hike for future enjoyment. I use the best camera equipment I can afford in order to record those places with as much clarity as possible. I compose images in a way that captures the scene as I am viewing it but I am free to compose in ways that I feel are interesting too. I am not confined to composing for what may be commercially sellable to clueless consumers. I am continuously trying to sharpen and broaden my skills so that my actions do not counteract the clarity and resolution this fine equipment provides. Turning professional isn’t an option. I am seeking to retire, not begin another career.
