Photographing an event is always a welcome test of stamina and awareness; a sort of composing marathon. I like to prime my senses to look for compositions and interactions that can be used to tell a story. I look for wide shots that give a sense of the scale of […]
Wedding preparation, wedding ceremony, wedding reception and wedding decor photography.

Photography for the purpose of self expression.
Art – Dolls
Photographs of dolls, mannequin and other human simulacra on display. Dolls, mannequins and other human simulacra have captivated my attention since childhood. I can vividly remember playing with dolls, action and Lego figures as a child. For a brief period, around the age of eleven, a friend gave me a […]
Art – Flora
Images of flora blossoming, growing and dying. I love photographing plants because of the way they interact with light and what that reveals about how my brain works. I’d probably seen thousands of flower and plant pictures before taking my own, so when I took my first floral photo, I […]
Art – Food
Images from my kitchen of ingredients, including raw meat, that I’ve used to prepare meals.
Art – Good Fences
I grew up in a country where fences were the norm. Almost everyone had a fence around their private property. On the tops of concrete fences, broken glass bottles were often embedded. The sight of these fences always filled me with a dread due to my strong visceral reaction. I […]

So many faces on so many lampposts! Over time, paper posters have been stapled to lampposts to advertise almost everything. These posters weather and decay over time and so do the faces of the people they show. I like the way they decay so I try to capture that with […]
Art – Shallow
The world is packed with visual stimulation and it’s easy to lose focus when I need to observe a single thing. My brain can momentarily compensate and filter, to a degree, for things I don’t want to see. My lens however, does a better job at eliminating background noise so […]
Art – Twilight
I love the way sunlight transforms the world during twilight, sunrise and sunset. My awareness of the passage of time is heightened has colors and hues change and the world lights up or darkens. Time seems endless due to my deep focus on the fleeting changes. I can live, as […]
Art – Wired Sky
I have been intrigued by the sky for as long as I can remember. The constantly shifting light, color, and content are a permanent source of inspiration. In urban areas, my view of this plane is often interrupted by power and data lines, the profiles of buildings, fences, trees and […]
Art – On the Bus, Window Seat
In 2000, I purchased an Nikon Coolpix 950 and started photographing my fellow bus riders in Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN. This a selection of images of passengers sitting next to the bus windows.
