I am a Sport, Wildlife, and landscape photographer.


Took this picture of a United Airlines 757 landing at O’Hare Intl. airport after a rain storm. What’s good about shooting aircraft after a storm the atmosphere is still full a moisture and when the aircraft are taking off or landing vapor can happen on and around the aircraft. In this case vapor is coming off the edge of the extended flaps. With the dark background and the white of the vapor can make some interesting photography.



Taken with a Canon 7D, Canon 100-400mm lens at 400mm, ISO-100, f/5.6, 1.800 shutter speed.

Moon Rise

Took this picture in Lake in the Hills, IL while I was out for a walk. Always like to take my camera with me because the location I’m in is close to a nature preserve and I’m always on a lookout for animals. I was able to see the moon coming up and was able to get this picture.

The background was originally blue because the sun had not set just yet, I was able to switch this picture to Black & White and that ended up making the background black.
