My first SLR was a Minolta SRT 102 in 1974.   I went to an Olympus system (OM-2) in the early 80's, then moved to Nikon several years later.  I currently use a D810.    My principal interest is nature and landscapes but also with some travel and urban photos.   I've always been interested in patterns in nature and, increasingly, I'm drawn to motion and abstract images.  

I have greatly benefited from workshops taken with Brenda Tharp; Joseph Rossbach, Richard Bernabe, and Ian Plant; Tim Cooper and Doug Johnson; Justin Black, Jack Dykinga, and John Shaw; Gary Hart and Don Smith.
