Photography has been a longtime passion and sometimes vocation. From 2004-2015 my primary interest was photographing ghost towns, junkyards, and modern ruins by the light of the moon. I taught night photography, Photoshop, and Lightroom classes at colleges and workshops during much of this time. I've also enjoyed shooting 360º panoramas.
As of late 2016, I'm mostly taking a break from the presentation layer of photography.
