  • About Me

    My passion for photography began several years ago, when I purchased my first 35 mm (film) camera. Technology has changed significantly over the years, but what hasn't changed is my love of capturing meaningful moments. The sun rising over the Grand Canyon, or setting over Grand Lake, the day a child is born, the adoring looks of a newly engaged couple, a special anniversary -- capturing these moments and recording the images brings me great joy.

    My goal is to make your photo shoot great fun and to provide you with images that you will cherish for many years. Any of the landscape images on my website, Facebook page, or Instagram can be custom-sized for your home or office. Contact me for prices and for information about upcoming art shows/sales.

    There is beauty all around us and in every individual. Capturing this beauty and reflecting the personality of each person I photograph is very rewarding. I provide on-location portrait shoots in and around the state of Oklahoma, and in my studio in Edmond. I look forward to working with you.

Prince William Sound, Alaska

This beautiful, clear day on Prince William Sound, Alaska, started out very foggy. It ended up so clear and tranquil, which gave many opportunities for reflections. I couldn’t decide between black and white or color on a few of these, so I’m posting both. Any of these can be ordered as art for your home or office. And, any in color, can be converted to black and white. Contact me if you have questions about orders or pricing! Enjoy!

There’s a reason it is called Glacier View

While in Alaska in September, we drove to the small town of Glacier View, about two hours northeast of Anchorage along the scenic Glenn Highway. Glacier View, with its population of approximately 200, lies between the Chugach and Talkeetna mountain ranges. It is home to the Matanuska Glacier, America’s largest roadside glacier, which is 27 miles long and 4 miles wide. On our first visit to Alaska, in 2019, we did a guided hike on the Matanuska Glacier. This time, we photographed it with fall foliage in the foreground and also flew over it in a helicopter. The blue pools of water amidst the ice fields provided a nice pop of color. Another glacier, the Tazlina, can also be seen along the Glenn Highway, and is shown here with many evergreen trees in the foreground. The orange-colored layered mountains shown in these images are the Talkeetnas; the others are the Chugach. Any of these images can be converted into art for your home or office.

Ice Ice Baby! Knik & Colony Glaciers

During my second photo trip to Alaska, in September 2020, we flew over the Knik and Colony glacier in a helicopter (doors off) and landed on Grasshopper Bluff. It was a cold and windy day and worth ever second! Many of these images (especially the close ups of the glacier ice) were taken from the helicopter. The red ground cover in the foreground is Grasshopper Bluff looking toward the Knik Glacier. The Colony Glacier lake was also photographed from the helicopter. In 2019, we actually landed at the lake in front of the Colony Glacier and spent several hours there. This year, the large ice chunks were no longer there, so I was glad I had that opportunity in 2019. Since I couldn’t decided on black and white or color, I included both in several of these shots. Any of these images can be converted into art for your home or office. Contact me if you are interested in ordering.
