“Ever since I first vacationed along the Lake Michigan shore as a small boy, I’ve been captivated by the beauty of Michigan. As we drove from my home near Chicago, I would eagerly anticipate the first sign of dunes along the highway that heralded our arrival in this summer paradise.
“My love of Michigan led me to choose a lakeshore community to attend college, and I've lived in this, my adopted home, ever since.
“As a self-taught photographer, I’ve been extremely fortunate to be able to turn my passion into my profession. It began when my wife Joan, a writer, needed illustrations to accompany her freelance articles. Soon we were collaborating as travel journalists. We loved the challenge of communicating a place’s singular beauty and people in photographs and words.
“In recent years I’ve been able to travel and photograph extensively throughout the State of Michigan. Through my work I hope to share the beauty I’ve encountered along the way — and my desire to preserve it for future generations.”
