I am a nature photographer from Duluth, Minnesota with a strong interest in landscapes of Northeastern Minnesota. The Lake Superior shoreline, Lake Superior Highlands and Rivers, and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area / Superior Nat'l Forest are my favorite areas to photograph. Whenever possible, I like to venture out to other areas outside of Minnesota as well. I also enjoy photographing urban cityscapes and architecture.
My wife, Jeannine, and I moved to Duluth in May 2018. Prior to this, I had lived in the Twin Cities since 1981. New Town, ND is where I grew up, then I went to college at UND in Grand Forks, ND where I graduated with a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering. I was employed at Honeywell in the Twin Cities for 37 years until May 2018 when I retired. My wife, Jeannine, and I have two kids, Luke and Marie. We have a cabin on the shore of Devil Track Lake, just 10 miles from Grand Marais.
I have had a strong attraction to northeastern Minnesota ever since my first wilderness canoe trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area just prior to moving to Minnesota. After that, my friends and I traveled on about 30 more canoe trips in the BWCA and Quetico. Those canoe trips were what really got me hooked on Northeastern Minnesota; an area consisting of rushing rivers, cool clear lakes, mixed and coniferous forests, rugged rocky ridges, and the north shore of Lake Superior. This place has so much to offer for recreation and to a landscape photographer. I have always loved returning time and time again in all four seasons, and then we moved to Duluth, where this area is now right out our back door!
