I have been working as a photographer since 1981, exploring this wonderful world with photography as my passport. With stints at newspapers, wire services, television stations and hospitals, I have had many wonderful opportunities to make images.
My career as a freelance photographer began in 1986. I published my first book, “A Century of Seasons: Colorado’s Centennial Farms & Ranches” in 1994 and created an electronic version of the book for Colorado schools in the early days of CD-ROM. I couldn’t have done it without my good and talented friend, Emmett Jordan.
The following year, I began an association with the National Geographic Society that continues to this day. The book division gave me assignments to shoot travel books for the U.S. and Canada. In 1999 I began traveling to eight countries on the African continent as the photographer for the NGS book, “Africa”, which was a companion piece to the National Geographic/PBS series of the same name. I was fortunate enough to be included in a group of some 90 photojournalists from around the world to work on the historic book, “A Day in the Life of Africa”.
I live in New Mexico, where my wife, Jennifer, and I both work as photographers and photo tour leaders. We look forward to seeing your comments and hearing from you.
