Bicycling Photographer of Chicago's Lakefront
All of my personal photography is taken while low to the ground on my three-wheeled bike along Chicago’s lakefront and assumes a bugs-eye view of plant-life. I strive for bright colors to tell a story of visual depth with solid composition. Photography is part of my personal and professional life.
Although I have a master's degree in intaglio printmaking and worked in watercolors for decades, my current passion is photography. In all my media the common themes are the richness and inherent value of all things alive. Humans and plants are interchangeable actors on my stage that is designed to love and respect the bounties of nature.
For most of my career I have worked in publishing for either newspapers or magazines. Currently, I am a communications director and publish a magazine, websites and weekly email newsletters.
