Chemeketa CC, 1987, Certifcate
Defense Information School
I am a well-traveled photographer with a part-time day job. I've visited New York City, China, Hong Kong, Nepal, and Kuwait on my own dime, more or less. I have also called Portland, Oregon my home on and off for several years. I have an extensive stock file of images of Nepal and Oregon, and have written for publication. Among my credits is the military newspaper, "Pacific Stars & Stripes". I also contribute images to Dreamstime Stock Agency.
My favorite subjects to photograph are Asian women, nature, and the urban environment. I approach photography with documentary and minimalist styles that let what I have recorded on an SD card speak for itself. I look for color and compose around it.
I shoot with Nikon heavy metal bling hanging around my neck, and I also wander about on occasion with an Olympus "point & shoot" camera. I live in Keizer, Oregon.
