I am an Information Technology consultant and semi-professional photographer as well as a full time husband and father who loves exploring nature and stargazing. I am very fortunate to have grown up in Harrisburg, IL the Gateway to the Shawnee National Forest, within an hour's drive to most of the amazing sites in Southern Illinois. The region is home to myriad creeks blufs, and hundreds of natural waterfalls, most of which are on public land. I have spent the past few years trying to find and photograph as many natural features and vistas as I can, while learning about the craft of photography.
Taking pictures is an amazing hobby, for both mind and soul, and it seems to work well with my technical/analytical mind and my desire to be creative, though the creativity aspect isn't as natural to me. I feel that my style and methodology could be described as a photorealistic or documentary, working well with landscape and especially deep sky and nightscape photography, which tend to be more formulaic. I love getting out and bringing the world and the "otherworldly sky" to people who may not be able to get out as much and see it for themselves. My goal has always been first and foremost to support the region and I hope I have achieved and continue to achieve it.
