Your Bio

Welcome to, I developed an interest in photography at a young age attending sporting events around Chicagoland, most notable at The International Amphitheater, The Chicago Stadium, The Hammond Civic Center, Wrigley Field as well as Comiskey Park. I actually managed some great shots in the smoke filled arenas in the 70’s and 80’s and realized I could hustle some currency doing something I truly enjoyed.
Today I still enjoy working sporting and live music events, as well as creative portrait photography. I have to say, I'm most passionate about wildlife, wilderness, mother nature, and scenic landscape photography. Give me a mountainside, a violent storm, the deep woods, or a 400 pound black bear, and I truly can be creative and content.

For all photography pricing contact me at 219-746-4190
