After retiring from the U.S. Army, I began using 35mm and medium format cameras to capture landscapes, earning honors in several juried photography competitions. Later, I became involved in the military photojournalism and forensic photography fields, where I became an award-winning Department of Defense civilian photographer and crime scene photography instructor. Still, I longed to return to Alaskan outdoor experience and since purchasing my first large format camera, have chosen to use this medium primarily to photograph the Last Frontier's many scenic landscapes. Though I still use medium format cameras for some projects, I work primarily with my Agfa Ansco 8x10 Type C-1 Ground and Chamonix 045N-2 4x5 large format cameras. Thank you for visiting my site. I hope you enjoy my work as I share my visions with you.”

Weekend project. Picked up this jogging stroller at a garage sale Friday. Modified it a bit to accept my Trekker AW, which straps in perfectly, holding my Afga Ansco 8×10, two lenses with boards, filters and other accessories. Bogen tripod, smaller AW bag holds my 14 inch Ektar and 19 inch Artar lenses. 10-film holder bag fits neatly underneath. Brake system for stopping on inclines. Glides smoothly on big 16-inch tires. Perfect for long treks along the coastal trails without breaking my back. Best 20 bucks I’ve ever spent.
