I am an inter­na­tion­al­ly pub­lished Fine Art pho­tog­ra­ph­er based in East Texas. Some of the notable pho­to­graph­ic artists I have stud­ied under include, but are not lim­it­ed to, William Bran­son III, Tom Rouse, Tony Cor­bell, John Hart­man, and Steve Kozak. These, and oth­er won­der­ful artists, have guid­ed me in both the nuts and bolts of the art form, and the see­ing of the art itself in my mind.

Many pho­to­graph­ic artists tend to see blur­ry or unsta­ble images as cre­ative, and it has worked for them. How­ev­er, I tend toward the sharp clean image that is rep­re­sen­ta­tive of some­thing. I do step away from the sharp and clean from time to time in my port­fo­lio, but not often. My sub­jects usu­al­ly, but not always, musi­cal instru­ments, flow­ers, and nature in general.

My work is designed for homes, offices, busi­ness­es, schools, hos­pi­tals, and almost any build­ing pop­u­lat­ed by peo­ple. My desire is that peo­ple are able to ‘live with” the images day in and day out and still enjoy them as they see them in the hall­way, behind the desk, or on a liv­ing room wall.

I was born (a long time ago) in Athens, Texas. In the sixth grade, I dis­cov­ered music and have been a musi­cian from that time. In my mid-twen­ties, I found myself in a US Air Force band prepar­ing to go to Japan and a friend of my dad’s lent me an old, but good cam­era. That was the begin­ning of a long rela­tion­ship with pho­tog­ra­phy and the visu­al arts. I have done wed­dings, com­mer­cial work, por­traits, and stock pho­tog­ra­phy. The past few years I have indulged myself with fine art work.

When I get the oppor­tu­ni­ty to talk about my art, peo­ple ask where do you get your inspi­ra­tion? All I can say is that ideas come to me. I can be work­ing on a project and a com­plete­ly un-relat­ed image will pop into my head almost com­plete. After I see the image in my mind, it becomes a mat­ter of find­ing a way to put the light­ing, mod­els, cam­era, back­grounds, and oth­er indi­vid­ual parts together.

Thank you for your inter­est in my work. As an artist and a musi­cian, I can tell you that a part of the artist always goes with each work that they pro­duce. I am so glad that you took the time to view my work, and I thank you for your patronage.

These images are from my series of pho­tographs por­tray­ing the vio­lin. They are pro­duced in black and white, sepia, and color.

These images are pro­duced as a part of lim­it­ed edi­tions in most cas­es. Lim­it­ed Edi­tion prints come with a Cer­tifi­cate of Authen­tic­i­ty and are signed by the artist.

Thank you for your inter­est in my work. As an artist and a musi­cian, I can tell you that a part of the artist always goes with each work that they pro­duce. I am so glad that you took the time to view my work, and I thank you for your patronage.
