About Me

I grew up in Sonoma County and now reside in the Monterey Bay Area and San Luis Obispo County. I'm still learning photography, every day. I don't use photo editing software, don't touch up/fix, and don't do any corrections. I grew up watching my dad take photos and wishing I could be like him. Photographing these wonders has become my passion and I'm happy to share it with you.

New Arrivals

My latest photographs are always posted on my website in the New Arrivals Gallery

What is Ahead

The shooting schedule will include Montana de Oro State Park and the Monterey area.

Dear <<First Name>>,

Welcome to my first newsletter!

I officially launched my Heritage Photography business on May 11th, 2012.

My goal with this newsletter is to highlight photos from the previous month, share websites that interest me, and plans for photo excursions. Please feel free to share this newsletter with friends, post to your walls, tweet, and more.

Thank you for all of your support and encouragement, you are a great community!

Catalina Island

My first visit to the island. A wonderful day capturing images of monuments, flowers, birds, and the casino. I can't wait to return to explore more of the island and see the flying fish.


I have many life lists including landmark signs, California State Parks, lighthouses, a National Park in every state, and more. I was glad to check off a few more signs on my visits in September. California offers a rich and diverse history, I'm glad some of it is captured.

Anza Borrego Desert State Park

I acquired a permit to shoot stills in the park. September offers a small number of visitors to the area, which enabled me to capture shots of rock formations, washes, and burrowing owls.


I'm lucky to live near Monterey Bay. I am frequently greeted by glorious sunrises, reminding me that every day is a chance for a new beginning. The power lines, birds, and light poles provide fun commentary whenever I post the images on my Facebook page.
