Many people feel that anyone can take a picture. However, to create a photograph takes much more than just pushing the shutter button. A good photographer realizes most importantly he/she must create a photograph, not just “take” a picture. What exactly does this entail? A photograph must be technically superior to a snapshot, however, more importantly; a photographer needs to create a photograph that is visually stunning and relays to the observer their feelings and emotions of their subject. My hope is that I convey this message to observers of my work.

Style North American scenics including landscapes, waterscapes and macro photographs.

TechniqueWorks with digital cameras (Cannon Digital 50D and Rebel XT) in color and black and white. Uses only available lightand a few filters (Polarizer and Color Intensifier). Reproduces images on Epson Velvet Professional Paper as well as Epson Luster Professional paper depending on the situation using an Epson R3000 Photo printer. Inks used are Ultrachrome K3 archival nine color inks. If need be, also uses outside vendor to produce prints larger than 13x19.

BackgroundAlthough not formally trained in the art of photography, I have been practicing my craft for almost ten years. Workingas a professional photographer has been a goal of mine since she could remember however, over the past two years this goal has become a serious obession. I am currently writing articles for various magazines including Nature Photographer Magazine, Wyoming Elements and Heart of Ohio Magazine.

Publications and Shows Magazines include Nature Photographer Magazine, Truth Conscience, Michigan Out of Doors, Wyoming Elements, Heart of Ohio Magazine, Ashland Times Gazette, and the Mansfield News Journal. Photographs also featured on book covers including, “Somewhere There’s a Rainbow” by Graydon Horath and “Common Sense” by CG Ferrel. Exhibitions: Ashland Community Art Center, ODOT in Ashland, Ohio, Henne’s Art Cellar Gallery, Cool Beans CafË in Ashland, Ohio. Part of a large gallery show at Wassenberg Art Center, Firelands Association of Visual Arts Photography Show, National Center for Nature Photography and Henne’s Art Cellar Gallery.
