I've retired from a rewarding aerospace engineering career to devote more time to my hobby and passion: landscape and nature photography.

I am a member of the Central Maryland Photographers Guild and have served as its Director, Assistant Director, and Education Coordinator. I currently lead the Guild's monthly DSLR Users Group meetings. 

 

In addition to photographing landscapes and dramatic skies, especially out west, I enjoy close-up and wildlife photography. The mid-Atlantic region offers nature photographers many venues and year-round opportunities to photograph resident and migratory birds: Bald Eagles and Ospreys fishing in the Delmarva watershed rivers and creeks; thousands of overwintering Snow Geese that explosively lift-off the marsh at dusk; or a solitary Great Blue Heron silently and patiently stalking prey in wetland shallows.

Diana, my wife and photography partner, catalogs and post processes our photographs. She initially honed her post processing skills using Photoshop CS3 to restore vintage 35mm slides and prints. She uses Adobe's Creative Cloud for Photographers (Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC), and specialized post processing applications from ON1, Topaz Labs, and HDRsoft.
