If you are in the Waunakee, Wisconsin area between March 1, 2017, and April 28, 2017, I will have some of my landscape, nature, and wildlife photographs on display at the Waunakee Village Hall’s Creative Wall at the Hall. The Waunakee Village Hall is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. and is located at 500 West Main Street. Every two months the Village of Waunakee highlights a local creative person by allowing them to display their work. The following is a brief synopsis of how I started my photography hobby and settled in Waunakee.
My interest in photography began in 1981 while living in my hometown of Massillon, Ohio. In 1986, my family moved to Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I graduated in 1987 from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a Bachelor of Environmental Design, which is a four-year Architecture Degree, and a Minor in Photography. I started working at a small residential design firm in Madison, Wisconsin, in August of 1987. In 1990, I was hired by an architecture firm in Madison, and I became a Wisconsin Licensed Architect in 1992. My wife, daughter, and I moved to Waunakee in 1993. I started my Waunakee based architecture practice in 1995 specializing in designing new construction and addition and remodeling projects for residential and small commercial buildings.
I developed my hobby of photography while in college by doing architectural, event, family, portrait, landscape, nature, travel, and wildlife photography. My photography classes included technical and composition aspects, portfolio assignments, black and white film processing and printing, and color printing. The Architecture Department allowed me to use their 4x5 large format camera and darkroom.
I have had the opportunity to do landscape, nature, and wildlife photography in Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, South Dakota, New Hampshire, Virginia, Wyoming, and Colorado.
Thank you for visiting the Creative Wall at the Hall to see my photographs.
