As a child, I was actually raised in a darkroom and not allowed to just roam wild. Film developing back in the day required a goodly amount of time in the darkroom. From my high chair, somehow my baby talk alerted my parents when the buzzer went off, and it was time for the film to go from the developer to the fixer.
From the time I was born, until I started grade school, my family ran a photo studio, first in Sheridan, Wyoming and then later in Bozeman, Montana. My mother was the creative member of the family. She had an eye for what makes a great photograph. My father was an unbelievable photographic printer. I grew up as a sports fan in Seattle. Over the years I have had the opportunity to cover a wide range of sporting events from baseball play-off fames to NBA basketball and NFT football. Currently with my son, I cover a number of endurance car racing events, including the 24 hours of Le Mans.
I am also a travel writer and photographer and always make time for a few images wherever I travel. I have recently become focused on astro-photography -- capturing images of the much sought-after Milky Way.
