I bought my first good camera when I was 20 years old and never looked backed. I began photographing landscapes and architecture in 1976, first with that Canon AE-1, then an Ikeda 4x5 Field View. Then I added automotive photography in 1978. I put automobiles into historic perspective using carefully selected locations.
I published my first story when I was 13 years old, and I've been writing ever since. Automotive history has been the primary focus, but I've done biography, travel, and hagiography. Clean, concise, with great attention to detail, that's my style.
When the author and photographer are one, the results are compelling. I know the theme of the text, and can match the images to that theme. Or I can wrap the text around a set of images. Editors have loved the results, since I sold my first story to Petersen's Circle Track magazine in 1983.
