Fluorite Mineral

About The Artist

I have been a commercial stock photographer for 30+ years; time flies!

I began my career shooting landscapes in the beautiful and diverse Pacific Northwest.  A large and medium format camera loaded with Fuji Velvia film (remember that stuff?) were my constant companions. Hiking numerous trails I eventually found myself paying more attention to what was at my feet rather than on the horizon and my foray into macro/close-up photography began.

My primary interest now lies in capturing the colors, patterns, and textures found in rocks, minerals, and fossils. My large format gear and film has been replaced by Nikon DSLR's and Nikkor macro lenses; 60, 105, and 200.  Film development has been replaced by Lightroom, Photoshop, and Nik Software.

I hope you find enjoyment in viewing these images as much as I do in creating them.  To see through the lens what the naked eye may miss or be unable to perceive is a fascinating experience.

If you have any questions regarding the purchasing options of these images whether for stock, prints or products, or anything related to their creation please don't hesitate to ask.  I can be reached at mwphotog@comast.net.

Thanks for visiting.
