VISUAL ARTIST – Lighting Design, Photography

“I consider myself a part-time or full-time established professional artist who routinely produces/performs. I actively market my work.”

I am a nature photography is mainly tightly focused to macro landscapes. In that genre I break my focus down to five areas...water 'n rock, foliage/floral, clouds, winter, and still-life. All work is done with natural or available light (no flash). I don't go out with a photograph in mind, but if someone has to ask, 'what are you taking a picture of?' I know I'm on the right track! I love to take the time to explore what might be otherwise and usually overlooked My love of nature photography is twofold...the act and result of photography (of course) and that I get out into nature...I may spend all day and never make a photograph, yet go home satisfied!

I have done some still for someone's magazine article and for the St. Cloud Symphony Orchestra Calendar. I am also working on a project of still-lifes in collaboration with a local writer.

And I do some dance related photography for the Minnesota Dance Ensemble.

I'm employed as Technical Director of the Paramount Theatre in St. Cloud and serve as the theatre's resident lighting designer. It seems to be a complementary employment for my photography ... both have to do so much with light.

Slides, video/audio tapes, or a brochure of work available to look at if requested.

I have marketed myself as an artist as follows:
I have work at the Paramount Arts Gallery. And have some work showing thru October at the Red Cross Clinic on St. Germain Street in St. Cloud. I also have some work at the Robert Wilde Studios in Dassel, MN (though not current)
