Welcome to my Website

I'm located in Omaha Nebraska where I enjoy taking photographs, do some website development and miscellaneous other stuff.

Much of my photography work is with dogs. I'm a member of the Nebraska Kennel Club and do volunteer work for other dog clubs and organizations in the area. I currently have two dogs, a twelve-year-old Great Dane named Harlan and a six-month old SAP (silly-ass puppy) Labrador retriever named Jericho. Few things give me greater satisfaction than a good doggy photo, and nothing means more to me than the love and loyalty of my dogs.

Please enjoy wandering around my website!

In Loving Memory

Joshua
4/19/2002 - 11/29/2016

Joshua was my first dog and I think he was the greatest dog that ever lived. He was 7 weeks and 2 days old when he came to live with me. Friendly, handsome and eager to please, he never caused me a single serious problem. In looking back over our time together two things in particular stand out about him:

-- He was very very smart. That's not just my opinion, people far more knowledgeable about dogs than me told me the same thing. His grasp of English was so good he pretty much understood anything I told him to do.

-- More than anything else, he loved people. The greatest joy in his life was meeting someone new. I used to say that he treated everyone he met like they were the one true love he'd been searching for his whole life.

Joshua taught me life is to be enjoyed. His greatest worry was "Am I going to get a piece of that hot dog you're eating?" Chasing squirrels, jumping into water after a stick, going for walks or even just lying in the sun, like all dogs Joshua was all about fully living every second that was given to him. The world would be a much better place if more people understood this.

I miss him terribly.

Buddy
11/1/2003 - 2/2/2018

Buddy was my beautiful Australian shepherd. Possibly mixed with something else (golden?), his was a sweet and loving personality, one of those dogs that for no particular reason would wander up to you, rest his chin on your knee and gaze up at you with those beautiful brown "I adore you" eyes.

I got Buddy in an unusual way; one day when my new house was under construction this gorgeous fluffball pranced in and tried to get all the contractors to play with him. Soon he was there every day. He had no ID so I just called him "Buddy". Eventually I located his owners and found out his name was - Buddy! Right around here I suspected he'd be mine someday. Sure enough, when Joshua and I moved in, he parked his butt on my porch and wouldn't leave. So I adopted him from his owners (he'd been given to them as a gift but they actually hadn't wanted a house dog).

Of the three dogs I had during this period, Harlan the Great Dane was the one visitors first noticed (because, Great Dane), and Joshua was the dog that got into their face the most trying to get them to play fetch. But people usually ended up telling me that Buddy was the dog they fell in love with; calm, gentle, and very loving, he was perhaps the sweetest dog I'll ever have.
