I grew up in a small midwestern town Carey, Ohio USA. I loved the outdoors as a child I enjoyed fishing, hiking, and hunting, I could always be found getting into something as a child. My love for the outdoors has always been strong and my passion for Photography started at an early age. My parents used to have an old 110-film camera that I carried around with me, it never had any film but I would practice different composition's with it. When I finished school I moved to San Rafael, California worked and went to college for Photography. I quickly realized this would be the place I would spend my days in Northern California hiking the beautiful hills and Photographing the beauty the landscapes had to offer. I moved around a lot in those days to San Francisco, Los Angeles, but my heart never left San Rafael, Ca. and the beauty of Northern California. I eventually moved back North after finishing school in Santa Monica, Ca. and landed a job as a Purchasing Manager for a Manufacturing company and my days of photography were pushed aside to make a living. I eventually met my Beautiful wife Loretta and Madison our daughter came along. That is when I picked up my camera again and made the decision to pursue my dream as a Landscape Photographer.
