What I Do:
I am primarily a landscape photographer. This skill set differs from wedding, event, and studio portrait photography in significant ways; it involves an awareness of outdoor lighting, weather and atmospheric conditions and their effects on an image. I specialize in photos of nature, landscaping, architecture, properties, and farming operations.
Although, as you can see, I have been involved in image manipulation in my past work, I am less interested today in such effects--especially heavy saturation and HD effects, which, I feel, are getting a bit overdone.
Instead, I strive to show exactly how things look, under interesting and varied conditions of natural light. This, by the way, is more difficult than it sounds, since it involves taking the shot correctly, rather than spending a lot of time in front of a computer, trying to get it right.
Online Store: Sales of existing photos, in the form of high-quality wall decor, ready to hang, with orders taken fulfilled and delivered with just a few mouse clicks, from this site. Although I am always happy to hear from you, it is not necessary to contact me to make a purchase in this manner.
Assignments: On-assignment work: landscaping, estate photography, property photography, architecture, farm and garden. I charge a $25-per-hour additional travel fee for jobs more than a half-hour from home, with no additional mileage or gas costs. Contact to discuss other fees.
Photos for Publication: I can create new photos on assignment, or license existing ones for publication. Contact to discuss terms.

How These Pictures are Taken:
These days, I shoot only in the CR2 RAW format. Generally, when working outdoors in bright light, I use a circular polarizing filter, an ISO of 200 and Parameter 1, maximum saturation. For soft effects, especially in the spring and fall, I may use Parameter 2.
