I am originally from eastern South Dakota where I spent 13 years as a law enforcement officer. After making the decision that we needed a change, my wife and I decided to move to her hometown in Wyoming where we purchased a restaurant.
Living where we did, I realized there were many photographic opportunities and that is where I got hooked. Living close to Yellowstone and living in the middle of the Yellowstone ecosystem we enjoyed the opportunities that came with that.
After selling our restaurant in 2014, we decided to move back to South Dakota. When we moved back, all my photography equipment sat in a closet for 5 years. I’m not sure why. The only thing I can think of is that I was rather snobby about where we came from in Wyoming, and in my mind, South Dakota didn’t even come close as far as wildlife and nature opportunities. It took a while, but I realized that is not the case.
So in 2021, I got back into it. And it is the best decision that I have made. I have found great joy and inspiration in my photography lately. I hope you enjoy it as well.
Over the years I have won several photo contests and my work has been used by several organizations and publications. If you are interested in purchasing any of my work, don’t hesitate to contact me. You can also purchase photos directly in the gallery section of this web site.
