I am a self taught photographer, cat lover and nature lover. I live in Oakhurst CA which is less than one hour from Yosemite. And is...

I have been photographing nature since 1975.

I was raised in Oakhurst California (a small town in the Sierra Nevada 50 miles south of Yosemite Valley). A trout stream runs thru the subdivision where I lived. As a teenager, I spent my summers fishing that stream. I didn’t catch a lot of fish, but I developed a love for the peace, serenity and beauty of nature.

After I bought and understood how to use my first serious camera, I discovered that I had the tool that I needed to express my love of nature.

I am fascinated by the forms and patterns of nature as well as the color and beauty of wildflowers. Over the past few years I have developed a fascination for creating abstractions from light reflecting on moving water. I call these creations “wet light.”
