High-quality, beautiful photography

About

My Photography

I call my angle on photography “landscapes & cityscapes.” I marvel at the natural beauty that surrounds us but also love the energy and excitement that can be found in big cities, and often small towns, too. I sometimes find the beauty is found in the people who live in those cities and towns.  And I try to capture these wonderful scenes I come across as best I can through my lens. 

My Photos

My photos are printed and embedded into a high-quality metal. The dyes are infused directly into specially coated aluminum panels, which creates brilliant images that shine with radiant color. The metal prints are lightweight and very durable, making for a piece of art that will last and be enjoyed for many years.

My Favorite Quote

 The  quote below - by Mark Twain -  influences the photos that I take.


“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
