My introduction to photography began in the mid-50’s as a teenager employed to assist Joe Mason, a disabled Korean War Veteran, being trained by the Veterans Administration in the Art of Photography. I was hired primarily to assist Mr. Mason in the darkroom and to maintain an orderly appearance in his studio. Mr. Mason allowed me to be present for the majority of his training classes and this afforded me an opportunity to learn all aspects of the business.
Growing up in the beautiful Tidewater area of Southeastern Virginia gave me a profound love of nature’s awesome beauty. I embarked on a life-long mission of capturing this beauty not only on film, but also on canvas.
The breath-taking scenes in this collection reflect my relentless passion for nature and my efforts to raise public awareness of its beauty. I hope they will give you the same inspiration and encouragement that I experienced while capturing these precious and often fleeting moments.
