Photography is my passion. Flower photography is my art.

Welcome! Throughout 2022, landscape and flower photos will be added back.

I'm a former newspaper publisher and longtime editor of both dailies and weeklies in several rural communities on California's isolated, rural North Coast.

Post-newspaper career, I became known as The Flower Photographer of Silicon Valley.

I've been a member of Zenfolio, which hosts this site, since 2012, a member of the Professional Photographers of America since 2011 and, for many years, The Society of Professional Journalists (I still write occasional columns and journalistic articles).

I'm also a member of the Nevada Artists Association, The American Dahlia Society, HelpMeFind (roses), and Dave's Garden.

Word-of-mouth is my only advertising, so if you could share this website on social media and with friends and family, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you have found some beauty to inspire you on my website.
