My Bio
I have worked in the computer industry, am a fourth generation artist, and hold four graduate degrees including a PhD in Egyptology.

For a while, I was a professional artist and jeweler and have even worked for a bit in the visual effects industry. Where I once spent a lot less time creating drawings, paintings, and jewelry, today all my free time goes towards writing articles and books.

Fortunately, a silver lining existed in that cloud. Much of the stuff that I write is on ancient Egypt, which means that I need lots of beautiful photographs. As such, I have been using this opportunity to learn the art of photography. Through this I have discovered how much joy and satisfaction there is in creating beautiful photos.

I'm not going to submitting photos for the next few weeks.  I'm going to be traveling across Egypt taking photos for a book that I'm writing.  So, I'm leaving you an awesome photo of a chrysanthemum.  I'll be back mid-August of 2019 with more great photos to share.  :)  Thanks!!!

It's true--I own four cameras, but only one is a current camera model, a Nikon D7200.  My old cameras include a Nikon D80, a D50 converted for infrared, and a Sony Cyber-shot W310.  And I have to admit that the D7200 is an excellent camera.  When I go out to a museum or are doing a shoot for professional reasons, the D7200 is my go to work horse. But I still use old camera gear.  Often, in fact.  Very often.  I find that using older equipment accelerates my learning process.  While my modern camera takes awesome photographs, the older gear imposes limitations that are not compensated for by technology.  These limitations must be adjusted for

I've been gone for about a month, although I'm not sure that anyone noticed that I was gone or missed me. So what have I been up to?  It has been a rather exciting time. I'm busy writing a book on the ancient Egypt and the Bible.  And in the midst of all that excitement (work!), I've been putting together a blog that takes extracts from my published and soon to be published writing.  Along with the blogs, I've also included many photographs that I have taken on subject matter that relates to ancient Egypt, the Bible, and archaeology.  And since I'm dusting off many of these photos, I thought I'd share them with my friends on DA.
