Captain Photo at Machu Picchu

Self-taught photographer, 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 just me enjoying nature my way.


eep. Sleeping bag. Camera. Now I’m in my happy place. I love making beautiful pictures with my iPhone and DSLR on my photography road trips around the American West!

When I’m not on the road (or golfing) my equally favorite pastime is post processing my photos. Like many photographers, I take lots and lots of photos. 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 and I 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!

Today we got home from the Tampa Bay Area in Florida. This time we rode one of those air boats in the Everglades. It’s our 4th trip to Florida since December because Mai is doing business there. Loving it so much we started scoping out beach condos hoping to buy in a couple years and become bi-coastal.

All of these beautiful trips give me even more opportunities for adding travel photography to the blog!

Along with our road trips, in recent  months, we’ve been to Mexico, Sweden, and Peru, where we were in the Amazon jungle for two weeks doing spiritual work, and finishing with an unforgettable visit to Machu Picchu! That’s where the crazy picture of me on this page, in levitation meditation, comes from!

This February we embarked long anticipated trip to see the mystical temples of Bagan, Myanmar with a followup week in West Sumatra. For me, floating over the ancient temples in Myanmar in a hot air balloon and hiking to the top of a live volcano in Sumatra for sunrise are the top 2 highlights!

An Announcement

Shortly after returning from Asia, 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 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 for treating my cancer holistically at home. Constantly researching books, videos and documentaries, I’m learning so much about cancer and now am even more convinced that it’s a perfect decision!

The Cancer Juicer Website

For some reason, I’m compelled to tell my cancer story. It was the day, or day after, receiving the news that I bought the domain and have started blogging, telling what I’m doing to heal and why. Who knows, maybe it will inspire someone else or do humanity some future service.

Solar Eclipse

Are you going? I am! My son and I are meeting up in Grand Tetons National Park to photograph it on August 21st. It’ll be my first eclipse. So excited!

My Photography

Photographically, I believe my best photos in the past year came from a road trip to the stunning Oregon coast.  After two amazing days frolicking amid the misty atmosphere and surf getting a few amazing photos at Bandon Beach, I came home through the majestic Northern California redwoods.  This was my first experience stalking the wild rhododendron growing deep in the redwood forests during their short blooming season.

Most recently, between Christmas and the new year, I explored the sand dunes and desert in and around Death Valley National Park.  Coming up later this winter is a bucket-list trip to Myanmar and Sumatra.
