My Bio
Emotion. Mood. Feelings. This is what I capture through my photographs. Whether it is landscapes, architectural elements, still life, or macros - it is a very personal journey as my own fears, triumphs, beliefs, and shortcomings are exposed with each photo.

Much of what I shoot is done spontaneously without preconceived thought or plan. I let what is around me dictate what is photographed.

And the shooting is only the first step - a jumping off point. I take the raw images and create what I see in my mind’s eye. Coaxing out textures present in the shot – sometimes adding them. Enhancing the contrast of light and dark to create the mood and emotions I felt and feel. In the end, it’s all about listening to my heart and mind and creating a visual representation of what I feel the moment the shutter is released.

I'm a native Texan currently living in Milwaukee with my lovely wife and son.

I'm available for hire and commission. Please contact me for rates.

I use Nikon cameras and lenses, Induro tripods and Lowpro camera bags.

Favourite TV Shows
Twin Peaks, X-Files, Fringe, Star Trek
Tools of the Trade
Nikon cameras, Adobe Suite of Products, too many plugins to mention
Other Interests
music, travel, football (soccer)

Camera Obscura

Camera Obscura

Nov. 2, 2015 I’ve been fascinated with pinhole photography since I built my first pinhole camera out of an oatmeal container way back in high school.  (For those of you keeping score, that was over 30 years ago.)  There is something amazing about how such a tiny pinhole can capture such cool imagery.  What is more amazing is how old the pinhole camera is.  Originally called the “Camera Obscura”, latin for dark room or chamber, the earliest written record of it was from around 400 BC!  About 1800 years or so later, this is what Leonardo Da Vinci said about it: "Who would believe that so small a space could contain the image

Happy Birthday to you Scott :sing: :kiss:
HI! I really like your work. Would it be possible to have your permission to use this image:… to illustrate a scientific event?

It will happen on March 14 and it is about XX century physicists: Hoyle, Friedmann, Einstein, Dirac, Sakharov, Gödel e Bohm. It will be held here: and the image would be featured here:

Best wishes;
