Photography has always been a big part of my life since the age of twelve, when I learned to develop my own film and print my own pictures in a friends "darkroom." Now that I'm retired (after 29 years in the fire service), I have more time to explore, learn, and play with my "hobby." I live in the Willamette Valley of Oregon (USA), which gives me the opportunity to travel and photograph Oregon's incredible beauty to share with all of you. I'm primarily a "Landscape" and "Waterfall" photographer, but have been recently playing around with Portraits as well.
