I have been an semi-professional photographer for many years. When digital photography became the standard, I acquired a Nikon CoolPix 8800 camera and began taking digital photographs wherever I went. I subsequently upgraded to a Nikon D90 dSLR and have continued to photograph our National Parks, cities and towns, major and local Fireworks displays, and classic and vintage automobiles.
I have also become an avid Route 66 aficionado. I have traveled the "*Mother Road*" from Chicago to Santa Monica a number of times and have several large galleries arranged by state. Take a trip down memory lane and relive the early to mid century lifestyle.
Our Fireworks Gallery includes photographs ranging from L'International des Feux Loto-Quebec held in Montreal each summer, to Cincinnati's world renownedRiverFest held each Labor Day weekend, Thunder over Louisville, a major display held two weeks before the Kentucky Derby, and a variety of local Fourth of July fireworks exhibitions.
Vintage automobiles capture the imagination and bring back fond memories of "the good old days" when plenty of chrome and powerful engines dominated the roadways. Our collections of automobiles have been captured from numerous local "Car Shows" as well as the world famous Barrett-Jackson Auto Auctions held annually in Scottsdale, Arizona.
We invite you to browse our collections and add some photographs to your own collection.
Some background about me... By training, I am a Computational Chemist, and began my career on the faculty of the Purdue University College of Pharmacy. I subsequently moved into the pharmaceutical industry and held a number of positions at several major companies, including Eli Lilly Research Laboratories, Abbott Laboratories, Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical R&D, and Genentech. I was also a Principal Consultant at IBM Life Sciences. More information on my background may be found at my personal website.
