Started photographing while a Marine (artillary) in Viet Nam. Canon FX. Attended LSU in fine arts program, Painting. 1966-1970. Tulane grad school 1971-1973 in fine arts, Painting. During these years I exhibited my work in various shows and galleries. Have works in several collections. In 1980 I began a career as a engineering draftsman and later a structural designer in industrial engineering. I retired from this profession in 2005. During these years I became interested in hiking and backpacking. This opened up a renewed passion for photography. 2004 purchased my first digital camera. 2007 purchased Canon 5D w/ 24-105mm lens, Sigma 12-24mm, Epson R2400 printer, Photoshop CS3. It really started to become a fulltime passion and still is.
