A San Francisco Photographer… “I shoot what I can’t help but shoot”


My interest in photography dates back to 1968 when my father gave me the Argus C3 range finder camera that he had used as a journalist during the Korean Conflict. Throughout my life, photography became a hobby that was especially gratifying while capturing backpacking trips as a Boy Scout.

My involvement with photography evolved as my relationship and respect for natureโ€™s grandeur became an inspiration. Whether I was on a beach, in the desert, up high in the mountains, or immersed on a city street, this passion has evolved into my current work.

Now based in San Francisco, I am afforded many photo opportunities as I walk the streets, hills, and coastlines of this wonderful area. ย My primary areas of interest include Architecture, Landscapes, and Urban Exploration.

My artistic ambition is: “Shoot how it feels, not what I see.”

My hope is that you’ll enjoy the perspective and point of view that I bring to the images I end up pushing the button for.
