Choose from prints on fine art paper; high-gloss metal, wood, acrylic, and canvas gallery wraps. You'll find a wide selection of frames for appropriate products. Orders are taken, produced and shipped by a reputable, third-party vendor.

I hope you will also check out my blog. I write about landscape--the places we occupy on the planet, and our way of perceiving and presenting landscape as art. I will also write about other planetary topics--geography, maps, and geology.

Lake Superior is nearly always pretty cold, so I was wearing a scarf in this picture, when I was coming home from a sailing and photo expedition--in August.

About My Work:

Our world is rapidly changing, and I think it's critical to capture it as it is. Generally, I strive for the journalistic approach; I present what the piece of land looks like.  Only occasionally do I work with heightening or altering effects. 

I don't make photographs of subjects--say, a photo of a bird or a building. Instead, I make compositions, taking pictures only in certain natural lighting conditions to get the best natural color effects.

I've been to six foreign countries and nearly every state. In April, I took off on a 3,500-mile odyssey to the American Southwest and returned to New Mexico in July. Some pictures from those trips are included in the Best Sellers gallery.

Now I live in Minnesota's Northland, blocks from Lake Superior, in part because the area has a lot of natural beauty.

I have been fascinated by landscape and the Earth since early childhood. I studied drawing, color and composition in my high school's art classes and in Saturday classes at The Art Institute of Chicago.

In grad school at Loyola University, Chicago, I followed my other passions, reading and writing, and focused in part on the history of the landscape genre in European art and literature.

I have been creating landscape photography since 2012, and will be offering my original art in addition to photographic prints.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with any questions or concerns. Email me at; call me at 218.464.8780, or use the Contact button at the top of the page.





As a landscape photographer, I am acutely aware of how our natural environment is changing. For example, as the planet warms and snow decreases, I have felt a growing urgency about capturing snowy landscapes. 

A portion of each year's profits will be donated to groups finding solutions to climate change.
