Photography has been my passion for over 51 years. My work started as a family photographer but really escalated when we travelled to the set of a movie called The Cowboys when living in New Mexico. Being close and photographing John Wayne catapulted my photography into a whole other realm.In high school I took printing & photography at a vocation school as well as a photography class at my sr. high. That launched me to my first job, traveling in three states taking portraits of children... continue reading

Farming is a way of life in the rural mid west of the United States and its a very special, but also demanding time with the farmers being out in the fields all day and sometimes even all night to get their acres of corn, soybeans, or any other crop out of the ground. Capturing these farmers in there element working makes for a great stock picture whether it is for a farm magazine, agricultural blog, or even a cooking article describing where your food comes from, designers and companies from all... continue reading
Since lot of my photos are travel photos and my editorials are also mostly made "on the road", ad hoc, I was a bit in trouble about this topic. I mostly follow my instincts, when I see something interesting, I push the button.I read a nice artice about your best travel photos being made at home - and I totally agree. That is the place you know, with all the hidden gems, you can wait for the nice weather and you can shot pictures at any time, in any conditions.My other best travel photos... continue reading
How to find great shots on the road: See a choice in the everyday life, not only tick off famous landmarks
We all know it: We look forward to visit a famous landmark and we do not have eyes for the very typical things that happens directly beside us. That’s how it was to me when I travelled. We originally planned to come in permitted time to the next designated target but then we had some small experiences. Allow me to introduce by way of example motifs shot from little market places with very characteristic/traditional offer and not special offering for tourists. Sometimes we decided to stop and... continue reading
When you’re a photographer — or any kind of artist, really — there is an easy trap to fall into, one in which you begin to lead this double sort of life. One portion of your life, usually the larger portion, is devoted to the day to days. This is the time you spend at work, the time you spend with your family, time spent shopping and doing chores, essentially all the things that you need to do to survive healthily and happily.And then there is that other life, the almost secret life, your art... continue reading
As a photographer, I not only want my photos to be loved, admired and enjoyed, (and sold!) but more important—also appreciated, understood and remembered. I want those things for my models too! While these are not always easy ideals to achieve, they are worthy of our pursuit and will “pay off” in ways we never dreamed possible. We live in an age of photographic consumption, where billions of photographs come and go, the “now” seemingly more important than the “hereafter.” Flat,... continue reading
Stairs in our little heavenOne island. One inlet. One beach. One path. One house. Combined create our heaven. The space and time of our childhood and most beautiful memories we share. My family and I. On our island. On our beach. In our house. It is a small house, summer house. All made by our father’s hands. All made by our mum’s faith. All made by my sister’s and mine love. Whole is circled with stairs. Stairs made of rock that my parents gathered around the house. Rock and sand. Each gently... continue reading
This photo is showing one fragment of my abstract painting. How do I create photograph – with macro shot How do I create painting – with passionPassion of lifeFamous Italian movies director once said and I remembered “There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the passion of life.” That is the thought in this painting. The circles of passions that motivate and move us. We all float in the limb of everyday circumstances and slowly we tend to lose the passion and dreams that... continue reading
You have to shoot a lot of pictures to get a good one especially when your model is a dog. He is not particularly interested in the story but in the embrace and the attention. She also holds him tight when he is forced to look at his drawing. Sometimes one photograph is enough to understand the story of his life. At the beach. And when he's happy, most of the time he's happy. continue reading
