ABOUT -- My first photographic experience began with my tour of duty in Vietnam in 1969-70.  I used an old Argus 35mm camera to produce all of the photos and the cover shot that would in 2008 become part of my book, The Ghosts of Thua Thien.  The book was published by McFarland  & Company and is available from McFarland Publishers or Amazon.Com.  The photos that I have included in my Vietnam Gallery are there for historical interest, not because of photographic excellence.  Recently McFarland Publishers released 'Nam Raw, a collection of excerpts from 24 Vietnam war combat memoirs.  My memoir was included.  

Much of my photographic inspiration comes from several famous photographers:  Frans Lanting, Tom Mangelsen, John Shaw, and Art Wolfe.  I am also inspired by several excellent South African wildlife photographers including Andrew Schoeman, Brendon Cremer, and Wim van den Heever. Wildlife and natural landscapes are my main interests but I also enjoy travel and aesthetic black and white photography. I share my photography to inspire others to understand and appreciate  the wildlife and natural ecosystems that I photograph.  Hopefully that will lead others to support wildlife and other conservation causes.
