Many of my images for sale are taken from intensive projects I'm working on, including former slave dwellings across the US, threatened old-growth forests, farm animals in sanctuaries, the last anthracite miners, and the changing landscape of my rural hometown.

I frame the photographs myself. Every photograph is drymounted and matted with four-ply 100% cotton museum board that I cut individually. Ready for hanging with attached specially coated picture wire, which will not leave marks on the wall. Each photograph is a limited edition and is signed, numbered and dated on front of mat in pencil. A certificate of authenticity is included.


Nice Words from customers:

I am a civil engineer and am always looking at how things are built and am totally impressed with everything from your framing of the picture to the crate it came in. You have a first class operation. - G. C”
“I am a true fan. I so appreciate how you are able to capture the essence of each animal’s spirit. — D. B.”
