Hello and thank you for looking at my Web page.

I am a professional photojournalist based in South-Central Minnesota and have more than three-decades of photographic and writing experience. Born and raised in Northern California, I started contributing to newspapers and magazines while still in high school. This lead to employment as staff shooter at a number of daily and weekly papers, and even a stint at publishing my own monthly community news magazine. I also have professional background in radio broadcasting and the culinary arts.

My heart holds a special place for the men and women of industry, agriculture, culinary arts, music and performing arts. These are places where I feel the most energized when putting the camera to my eye.

I specialize in capturing the moment as it happens in a story-telling documentary-style, whether it's a person's candid expression, the flavor of a special event, beauty of nature's or man's creation, or the stop action intensity of an athlete, musician, chef or farmer at work.

I am available for assignments and contract work in the Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota region.
