I am a Minneapolis-based photographer.

I took my first photography class as a student at the University of Minnesota in 1967. Since then, I have attended photography courses at Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Minneapolis Photography Center, and through seminars, and online courses.

My camera accompanies me wherever I travel, either locally or around the world.  My photography started out as documenting travel. In the mid 90’s, my wife and I traveled to Hawaii with an international group of friends. One of our closest friends, Karen, said “just make me a set of everything you photograph on this trip.”

I realized that I was seeing things differently than those around me. I see landscapes as if I am looking through a lens – well before I raise my camera.

Over time my photography has changed from capturing an image to working with that image to create a piece of art. Now I work with every image, whether a rural or urban landscape, the Minneapolis sunrise, sunset and night sky, or wildlife.

In 2016 I began to show my work publicly. Most recently four of my cityscape photographs were selected for display and sale at the Minneapolis Convention Center (as soon as that facility reopens).

This photo of Manchu Picchu in the Clouds is 30″ x 20″ will be printed on aluminum ready to hang.  It will take two weeks from customer order for the print to be made.  The photo was taken in January, 2016.

From there I hiked up to the ridge above the ancient city and set up my camera and tripod. I stayed standing at my tripod for two hours, first waiting for the sun to rise and then for the clouds cover to move and reveal the city below. My wife sat down in a little shelter but I was unwilling to leave my location least I lose what I thought was a perfect spot from which to take the photograph. I think it was worth the wait.  I have an aluminum print of this photo at 30 x 20 that contains a blemish where ink did not get applied in a small area at the very edge of the print and is being sold on sale as a “second” at $375.  Email me for details.

Scene from our balcony in Cortona

Sunset In Cortona

This photograph is printed on canvas at 26″ x 14″ and framed in a walnut floating frame increasing its size to 25.75″ x 15.75″. The picture shown here is a photograph of the framed photo against a white wall.

I love the way the sun drenches the scene with its glow. The photograph was taken in Cortona, Italy after a long day of biking through the hills of Tuscany. I was there as part of a biking tour. The road from the highway up to these residences where we spent the night was perhaps the steepest of all the hills we rode up that day. Many in our biking group decide to walk up or take a ride in the support vehicle. But for me the ride up was worth the view when I walked out onto our balcony and saw the beautiful sunset.

Tar Se La Mountain

Tar Se La Mountain

This photograph of Tar Se La Mountain is printed on canvas and framed in a traditional walnut frame. As framed the piece is 34″ x 24″.

The day before taking this photograph I spent an afternoon scouting out the location. It was a gray and overcast day. None of the photographs I took that day compare to this one. The next day I went back. My wife and a friend set up to paint watercolors of flowers. I set out hoping to find the same location (its a big mountain!). I found the spot and took the photograph. I love the majestic mountain, the pillowy clouds and sweep of the valley. In the lower right corner is a home. If you look closely, you will see a person dressed in red walking toward the home.

My hike took hours. After I took the photograph of the mountain, I  was interrupted by a group of monks who were performing a prayer service by the side of the river. They invited me to join them. At first I declined and waved them off. They insisted and sent several monks up the side of the mountain to escort me down to the river. Although we did not speak each other’s language, we communicated sufficiently so that I knew they wanted copies of the photographs I had taken of them and they had taken of me with my camera. It is a long story but after returning to the U.S. I was able to get the photographs to them.

Wild Horse running on Tibet Mountain Grassland

Wild Horses of Tibet

This photograph was taken in the grasslands of the Mountains of eastern Tibet. Upon order by customer the photograph will be printed on canvas at 24″ x16″ and framed in a walnut floating frame.

The back story of the photograph is that I rode horses out of a village in the morning to a nomad camp where I spent the rest of the day relaxing on the mountain, eating lunch and dinner with my nomad hosts. My wife and I spent the night in one of the nomad tents.  In the tent with us were a nomad husband and wife and their two children,  the another man also a nomad, a camp dog who curled up I behind my knees as I slept and 24 baby yaks. The baby yaks were each hand carried into the tent by the wife from across the the pasture a football field away. (First names are not used on purpose.) After she did that she milked the mother yaks and made our dinner.    They were tethered in the tent so that the mother yaks would not wander away at night. One of the men taught us how to make prayer flags. The opportunity to take this photograph occurred after leaving the nomad camp on horseback in the morning. We stopped for lunch in a high spot overlooking the grasslands. Quite suddenly this herd of horses came thundering by, passing us without stopping. Shortly after that a young boy rode up on horseback. He appeared much too young to be riding out there by himself. Then much to our surprise one of the adults from the nomad camp walked up and sat down to have lunch with us.  We rode our horses three hours to get there and she did it walking. My guess is that she took the short route, straight down the valley and straight up.
