I am a Fresno native and my family goes back to the 1880"s in the area. I am a Bullard High and a California State University of Fresno graduate. In my youth I was very active--hiking, skiing, tennis, golf. I am a retired real estate broker and real appraiser. I have traveled to many areas, including Europe, Africa, Canada, Central and South America, Mexico, Asia, IndoChina and the USA. After retiring in 1998, I started taking classes in photography at Fresno City College. I really enjoyed the classes, the photography, and the people.
Fine Art Photography is my specialty. I enjoy nature, close-up, abstract photography in both color and black and white. I use Nikon 35 mm D300 and a Hasselblad Medium Format cameras. I try to take one or two photo photoshoots or workshops a year throughout the country. I am a member and exhibitor at Spectrum Art Gallery. I have also exhibited at the Fresno Art Gallery, Riverparkway, Fresno City Hall, State and Federal Courthouses, University of California various furniture stores and gift shops.
