I'm a professional photographer living in South Bend, Indiana, which is about 45 minutes' drive from the southern tip of Lake Michigan and 90 minutes east of Chicago. I'm shown above with the Fuji GX680III. I have a lot of interests, including all aspects of nature, birding, travel, classic films, orchid growing, and much more.

I've been interested in photography since 1973...mostly landscapes and nature subjects. I work in large and medium formats:  4x5, 617, and 6x8. I have also used 5x7 and, on rare occasion, 8x10, but ordinarily I can obtain the highest quality necessary by using 4x5. I don't use 35mm format.  My most-used cameras are the Ebony SV45U2, Linhof 617 S III, Fuji GX617 and (formerly) Fuji GX680III, although I also have a Canham MQC 5x7, a Cambo 8x10, and a Canon EOS digital system.

My invaluable assistants, Heidi (left) and Gretchen (right) . Both are gone now, but I leave their photo up in their memory.

I offer high-quality fine prints that are held in many private and corporate collections.  I also offer a custom drum scanning service and instructional workshops for other photographers, including private Photoshop for Photographers instruction; more information on these topics can be found on the relevant pages. All images are also available for use under licensing.
