While I like the great outdoors, I am not really a naturalist or conservationist. As someone mechanically inclined, my interests are with machines and things industrial and these have been the primary focus of my photographic work. However, I have never really lost interest in photographing the landscape, it has it's own aesthetic, requires its own approach and has its own challenges. Furthermore, the ability to interpret land forms, sky and clouds is useful in photographing the railroad in the landscape, the grain elevator in the landscape and the setting for other industrial subjects.
Early on in my photography I made photographic expeditions Death Valley, Yosemite, Arches National Park and other places. Later on I went to Norway, Mono Lake and Death Valley again. But in the mid-nineties I made a conscious choice to concentrate on industrial subjects as this was the core of my interest in photography. Still, in my travels, I have continued to keep my eyes open for landscape images and there has been a slow but steady production of them, most recently from the Tehachapi Mountains southeast of Bakersfield and along Highway 50 in Nevada.
I plan to place my Norway and Death Valley images in their own galleries on this website, but here I offer a more general selection of the images made over the years, some going back to my beginnings in large format back in 1973.
