Welcome to my Portfolio! The Fine Art section here is comprised of my best-selling infrared photography, featured in galleries all over the North Bay, in Napa, Yountville, Santa Rosa, Tiburon, and Healdsburg, from 2007-2012.

About Me

I was born in a log cabin in the Kentucky backwoods... Oh, wait, that was Abe Lincoln. Never mind.

I'm a native New Englander, born and raised in Rhode Island, moved to Connecticut, and a few years later, moved to California, eventually landing in Napa Valley. There, I discovered not only great wines, but an interest in near-infrared photography and all it's magic. This is the stuff of the new James Webb Space Telescope, which can see billions of light years away.

I've been out of the galleries for a few years, since moving to the coast, but I will be retiring soon and will have more time to dedicate myself to my photography. I hope you enjoy the sampling of my work I have on this site. I will be adding other, non-infrared, collections as time permits.


This section will eventually contain a selection of my vintage car photo collection. I don't own the cars; just the pictures.



This section will eventually contain a selection of photos from my trips to Vermont.
