Artistic Photographic Landscapes of
Lake Superior and Michigan's Upper Peninsula
Are your colors manipulated?
I get that question all the time and it's a worthwhile one to consider. I don't think there is anything wrong with taking "artistic freedom" and tweaking the print qualities like contrast and color. In printing, I strive to make all of my images have similar contrast, color and overall brightness. Whether it's a gloomy, overcast day or full sun, my prints all have the same vivid color and contrast for exceptional print quality and viewing pleasure. The craft of making a fine print is essential to making the final image come to life. To me, print quality is paramount to conveying a scene with emotional impact.
The photographs on this site reflect my exploration of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and Lake Superior. I want you to see a part of Michigan that is quickly changing. While it may appear that these scenes are untouched, all have seen human impact. I've seen some troublesome behaviors by photographers and others that threaten the fragility of certain delicate areas. I urge all who come to this area to be respectful and considerate. Others will want to see it as you have.
The most rewarding part of photographing the landscape is that of exploration and discovery. Making images to share that experience completes the process and compels me to go back for more. Being surrounded by the beauty of the Upper Peninsula with the Hiawatha National Forest and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in my backyard, inspiration and opportunity abound. I would like to take you for a hike to see what I photograph, you would be amazed too.

Lots of snow and high cliffs make some pretty big ice curtains around Munising.
One of my favorite winter scenes.
