"Water Symphony"...

A symphony is often described as a harmonious state of things in general and of their properties. This incredible symphony of multiple waterfalls, speed and stream variations, whirlpools and cloudy mists of water if a wonderfully, complex sonata of nature, for both visual and audible senses. Each section of this panorama is a study and appreciation of nature. In addition, if you view this from across the room, you'll appreciate another perspective. I hope you enjoy. Comments welcome.

"Heather, Sophisticated"...

A fun photograph from a portrait session several years ago. As I often try to do, I wanted to create a timeless photograph but I wanted a mix of sophistication with this pose. What you don't see is the fun laughter before and after this frame. :) Comments welcome.

"Dreams in Color"...

One question that we often ask ourselves, 'do we dream in color'? Maybe we don't have to dream with our eyes closed. Why not dream with your eyes open? Here's to your dreams with your eyes open.

Several years ago, I was commissioned to photograph this model. We spent a few hours at this location and this was one of my favorite concepts. I hope you enjoy. Comments welcome.

"Delightful Outtakes"...

A few years ago, I was honored and commissioned to photograph this vibrant and friendly soul, alongside one of her passions, of course: cars! JoAnne and Robert are one of the friendliest couples you'll ever meet. They're always finding something to laugh about and their passion for cars (especially Porsches) can keep anyone entertained for hours. Even though I titled this photograph an outtake, it's reaches far beyond. The details of this photograph tells such a wonderful story of both JoAnne and Robert - always fun, laughing, humble, compassionate and always in close proximity of a special car. And good luck finding a spec of dirt in their garage! (jealous)
