EVERY PHOTO HAS A STORY
My family owns a PLANT NURSERY.
And even though the photos you will see here span multiple decades of my career, it became easy to split my work into two basic categories once I had the realization that without exception, all of my Residential Landscape Photography was shot in or around my hometown of Dallas, Texas. Sometimes, it was literally in my own backyard; hence, the "NEAR."
In my Naturally Occurring Landscapes and World Photography, the "FAR," I am continually fascinated by the combination of natural beauty and human ingenuity. Cultures throughout world solve the exact same problems -- where to sleep, who to worship, what to eat -- in such vastly different and exquisitely beautiful ways, that life continuously surprises me. I marvel at our ability as a species to take what was given to us and improve upon it, bending nature to our individual specifications and needs, and creating a version of the world that exists not as it really is, but as we wish it could be.
