I have devoted myself to the craft of a professional nature, landscape, event and travel photographer. Residing in rural Douglas County, Kansas, I've been an avid photographer for many years, experiencing the craft, the art, and the interaction of nature with humanity in a kaleidoscope of wonder and intrigue which I hope is contagious, through the photograph or while coaching a photographer.
Can a photographer also be classified as a recording artist? That may be debatable, however since I received a camera as a boy several decades ago, recording people, events, places, natural wonders both minute and grand, close up and light years distant has occupied my creative desires to the point of distraction for much of the ensuing years up to the present where making photographs is both my vocation and avocation.
The subjects I most love to photograph are as varied as my interests, including travel destinations, sports events, seminars, wildlife, night sky, landscape & cityscape, architectural & interior design, candid & portrait sessions for families & individuals, time lapse videography, aerial drone photography, fine art compositions, and gallery exhibitions. To augment my efforts, this web site should evolve to encompass education and consulting services aimed at leading others to develop their photography skills.
Art collectors desiring prints and publishers wishing to license my photographs can find suitable galleries and pricing on the gallery store: http://gallery.photographybyheart.com or you can find a varied selection available through Wolfe's Camera Print shop in Topeka, Kansas. Sondra Harkness can assist you at Wolfe's Camera.
If you are a photographer or interested in photography, my Adobe Portfolio is available here: http://www.photographybyheart.com. I'm available for free and fee-based help and consultations.
Certainly, I encourage you to connect with me on social media with your questions and comments. If you're local to the Lawrence, KS area, I am active in the Lawrence Photography Club at www.lawrencephotoclub.com as often as I'm able. Photography is a powerful medium and as a craft it can be very satisfying on many levels. My motto is "the only photographer you should compare yourself with is the one you used to be."
For the sake of the photograph,
