I first wanted to say a quick thanks for checking out my site and giving me a chance to show you the work that I do.

Life.  It is a curated collection of experiences, memories, trials, and even tribulations. Through my lens I experience life - the life I live, the life around me - through the people I know, the people I have yet to meet and the places, and sometimes the predicaments, I find myself. I hope you can enjoy life as I see it.

I am a photographer with a little bit of an artist mixed in. My cameras and lenses are instruments to capture moments in time. Ultimately, I am just a guy, lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time with camera in hand. Maybe the Luckiest Duck of all.

Photo: Had a chance to meet my long time photographer hero, Peter Read Miller and get a selfie. I have learned a lot from him and his photographic style. Advise is simple, known your sport/subject, collect peak action, crop, and don't over process.
