Welcome to my photographs of the forest, prairie, wetland, and scenic byways of Iowa and Kansas.

Photo news ... One of my landscape photographs was selected to appear on the book cover of Pulitzer Prize winning and international best selling author Marilynne Robinson's newest book, Lila.

One of America’s oldest running Public Television shows, Market to Market, redesigned its set incorporating my landscape photographs. Market to Market has been on the air for 40 years and is broadcast weekly in 20 states.

A collection of my landscape photographs, titled "The Sweet Light", was exhibited at the National Center for Nature Photography, America's first and only center totally devoted to nature photography.

I was selected to photograph five of Iowa's Scenic Byways: Grant Wood, Delaware Crossing, Historic Hills, Western Skies, and the Loess Hill National Scenic Byway.

A feature story about me and my photography appeared on the IPT show, Iowa Outdoors.
