Captain Photo at Machu Picchu

A self-taught photographer of four decades, father of four, grandfather of three, golfer, and author. Into holistic health so I juice almost daily, love the natural healing qualities of essential oils and do my best to eat real food. I don’t personally hug trees but am loyal to the cause. My landscape photography is the manifestation of my relationship with nature.

eep. Sleeping bag. Camera. Now I’m in my happy place. I love making beautiful pictures on my photography road trips around the American West! The equipment I use is simple; either my iPhone or micro four thirds kit anchored with an EM-1 Mk II. For added fun, the DJI, Mavic Air drone gets me up into the air for even better views.

When I’m not on the road (or golfing) my equally favorite pastime is post-processing my photos into art. Every road trip adds thousands of RAW photos to my library, however, I produce & publish very few of them. Crafting those RAW files to meet my vision is something I never rush. If you are a new photographer yearning to make better art out of your photos, maybe I can help you get the results you’re looking for too! If you haven’t already, I invite you to join my Private List!

Loving Life

Let Love In!

Mai (pronounced MAY) is my life partner and we love traveling together.  She is my ideal companion, so I also almost always go along on her business trips. She’s a love & relationship coach for women and ever since her new best-selling book came out; The Divorced Mom’s Guide to Dating(not an aff link), we’re traveling even more!

 

 

An Announcement

Shortly after returning from Asia last year, I learned that I’ve caught a case of advanced prostate cancer. Funny thing is that I haven’t felt any fear of death, only confidence that it’s simply a wakeup call to level up my game into a healthier lifestyle.

There’s still work for me to do in this world and I haven’t done it yet. My determination to cure my body exceeds any other passion, including photography, at the moment! My mom lived to 99. Let’s beat that.

The doctor wanted to burn it out with radiation and then do some hormone therapy. It annoys him that I declined his protocol. Instead, my decision is to treat my cancer holistically at home. Constantly researching books, videos and documentaries, I’m learning so much about health and its’ intimate relationship with cancer, as well as many other common debilitating diseases, and now I am even more convinced that it’s a perfect decision for me!
