Welcome to my website!
I’m an Iowa native and former newspaper photographer. My photojournalism career took me to newspapers in Iowa, Wyoming, Florida, Colorado, South Carolina, Nebraska, Minnesota and back to Iowa. My photos have been published in newspapers and magazines throughout North America and in Europe. I have won dozens of awards in state and national photojournalism competitions. I am most proud of being a two-time recipient of the Humanitarian Award from the Minnesota APME Association. Now I shoot photos mostly for fun (but may be available for some freelance work.)
I do have some of my photojournalism work displayed on this site, but my photo blog has my latest photos and musings. I’ll still shoot the occasional color photo, but I’ve discovered shooting black and white has rekindled my passion for photography.
Thanks for visiting!
