America, with her plains, mountains, valleys, deserts, and coastlines provides for a wonderful mix of landscapes. These places provide a great deal of photographic opportunity – especially when blended with plants, wildlife, and people. Colors, our interpretation of light, splash across the land and all living things to create wonderful images for the camera to record. I hope that in my images you will find meaning and an ability to deepen your appreciation for the visual gifts of our land.

While my images come from all parts of the United States, most of my work centers on the prairie of Kansas, the state where I was born, raised, and continue to live. Kansas is often viewed as being very flat – a place to “get through” on the way to where you are going. When one takes the time to stop, look, listen, and contemplate, the beauty of Kansas dispels this myth and opens one’s eyes to the vast beauty and complexity of the prairie.

A word about the photography is in order. I shoot with a Canon 7D body and a variety of lenses. Post processing is limited. My goal is to produce images that reflect my visual experience at the time I took the photograph. I do not blend images or do extensive post processing of images often, and clearly mark those images that are created in the post processing. In short, the images on this site require me to use my technical knowledge of the camera and equipment to produce the image. Post processing is limited to minor exposure correction, gradient filter, and dust speck removal.

I hope that you enjoy these images. If you have feedback or desire to see a broader portfolio for purchase, feel free to contact me.
