About

I have always liked landscape photography and have always wanted to reproduce the results on my own. Once I bought my first DSLR I was inspired to learn how to use the camera to capture the scenes that I wanted.

At first, like most photographers, there was a lot of disappointment. Instead of giving up though, I continued to learn by reading through blogs and posts of other photographers to understand more about how to compose a shot and use the camera settings to get what I wanted. Once I understood that photographing a scene is much more than just knowing about the different settings on the camera, I was able to apply my creativity to be able to see the scene as I wanted it to be captured and then use the camera as a tool to capture it.

I continue to search for new techniques and ideas on how to capture my scenes. I like to share my work with others and hope that they enjoy to look at it. I also enjoy getting out and traveling to new places in hopes to see things that are fascinating and to also have the ability to capture a new scene that others enjoy as much as I do.

I currently reside in the Fox Cities area of Wisconsin and most of my photos are taken in Wisconsin currently. Once things line up then I hope to be traveling outside the state a little more to photograph more places.

    • That is so true. It gives me more ideas and inspiration to see others work. I have learned to appreciate photos of things other than just nature and landscapes and have also learned how to photograph other things in the process. I’ve got a waterfall about 40 minutes away that I’m wanting to photograph if I can just get up early enough to do it. I think I’ll be busy this weekend the the following weekend I think I may be able to make a trip over there to do it. I always love photographing waterfalls. Anything with water and long exposure is my specialty as that is what I try to practice and work the most with.

      I also want to say that I am happy to have found your blog as well and thank you for taking an interest in my work. It always motivates me to continue taking and posting photos when others are interested. Keep up the good work. 🙂

  2. It is wonderful to be inspired by others and to appreciate things we may never look at otherwise.
    Your water shots are so lovely!
    Something I haven’t really tried yet.. Im not really near moving water… But, one day 🙂
    Enjoy your trip to the waterfall when you can. I know your images will be beautiful!!

    • Thanks Robyn. I always like to shoot water. I think it’s one of my favorite things to do. I’ve done the most research on how to do so and found out many other types of photography to do from that. I always enjoy learning something new and trying to figure it out. Now I just wish I had a little more time to work at processing a little more. I am happy with the majority of my photos but there are a few that don’t quite look the way I want them to.

    • Thanks for taking an interest in my work MM. Both my wife and I really want to make it over to Ireland and right now it is only just a matter of time as we pay off some debt then save up for the first trip. I’m guessing that we will make multiple visits as there’s just too much to do in just a 2-3 week visit. I know for sure that I’ll take into considerations some of the places that you post photos of as well as Ed Mooney as I am interested in the things that he photographs as well.

      • To do almost any country properly multiple trips are needed – we’ve just come back from 12 days in Iceland and only tried to do a fraction of a country that has c.320,000 people and still we felt a bit rushed.

        Feel free to bounce any ideas off me for your own travel plans, MM 🍀

          • It clearly depends upon interests, the history here is something else as Ed Mooney has been demonstrating nicely. Wide open spaces are not a feature, more winding country lanes with grass growing in the middle. The scale is totally different…..

    • A pleasure meeting you as well Cybele. Although the credit must go to Leanne for introducing you on her site. I always enjoy a nice fantasy story. I’ve been into reading long before photography and don’t think I’ll ever give that up. I’ve been enjoying your writing so far and once caught up won’t be able to wait until the next chapter. If there are any books you’ve come across worth reading in the genre let me know and I’ll have to check it out. Always looking forward to new stories to read as much as viewing new photos.

      Whenever I go to a park or somewhere with trails, I always go off the beaten path. It’s not so exciting to photograph what everyone has already seen, but to find the views that are rarely seen to photograph. There are a lot of places I want to visit but don’t think that will happen in one lifetime. All I can hope for is to have as many great experiences as I can.

      Thank you for following my blog as well and hope you continue to enjoy my work. I enjoy letting others view it as much as I enjoy photographing.
