My passion for photography goes back 50 plus years, starting with an ancient Brownie Reflex film camera, then rangefinder and SLR film cameras, smallformat digital, and now DSLR's. I have always had a desire to capture nature's beauty from behind the lens as true to life as possible, with a minimum of editing, stemming from many years of shooting film. All of these images were captured in the Pacific Northwest, where I have spent the majority of my life. I love the outdoors, and have almost always carried a camera with me on many flyfishing, skiing and beach excursions. The region's mountains, beaches, deserts, abundant wildlife (particularly birds) and beautiful cityscapes have been my canvas. Semi-retired after 30 years of full time medical practice, I am attempting to take photography from an enthusiast hobby to the professional level, recently providing the wall decor for Integrity Medical Evaluations offices in Eugene and Portland. I hope you enjoy the photos posted here. Please contact me if you have any questions.
