I am a photographer with a passion for landscapes and weather.  I am also the (unpaid) staff photographer for Opera Southwest -- a photography category with challenges completely different from landscapes.  I have been a student of Santa Fe photographer Nevada Weir, and I created the ELCC's Portfolio Project and managed it for the first four years of its existence.  I teach "Digital Camera Basics" for adults at UNM Continuing Education, and I’ve been the "photography coach" for Road Scholar photography tours of Utah's national parks since 2015.  My images have appeared in the Albuquerque Journal, the Santa Fe New Mexican, and various national opera publications.

I like old buildings, old cars, junkyards, cemeteries, churches, the Oceanside, as well as shadows and patterns wherever I find them.  I have won First Place & Best of Show at the New Mexico State Fair, as well as a First Place in the ANMPAS.  My photos have been on the cover of the NM Bar Magazine 6 times, and I have had a showing of my UNM series at the Tractor Brewery.  I was Team Photographer for the Albuquerque Lazers (Professional Volleyball Team).  Much of my progress as a photographer is due to participation in various ELCC activities, learning from many Club members, as well as working with 35 different judges over 6 years as the Club’s Exhibition Chair.

The objective of the Enchanted Lens Camera Club is to provide enjoyment and knowledge of photography to its members through their participation and efforts in club activities.
