I was born in Minneapolis in 1942. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of family trips to Lake Superior’s North Shore. My father and one of his best friends (who was a commercial photographer) were responsible for my initial interest in photography. A number of nature photographers inspired me, but none more than Les Blacklock. I have been shooting pictures since the 1960s. As the years pass by, photography for me has evolved from a casual hobby to a passion. My images have appeared on the cover of calendars, in advertisements, in international magazines ,on commercial websites and featured in a story on KARE 11 TV. I have produced a calendar for the past 10 years and also published a coffee table book of photographs of the North Shore.
