I have been photographing buildings for over 35 years; professionally for the last 20 years. Architecture has always held my primary interest. Visually speaking, people have not changed much in the last 2,000 years. Their architecture, however, says more about their culture than any portrait could convey.

Photographers are, at their core, preservationists; they stop time. So for me, photographing historic architecture is only natural.

I have photographed over 8,000 buildings for historic surveys, 106 Review, Historic American Engineering Record, National Register of Historic Places nominations, National Landmark nominations and preservation easements. I have photographed buildings for architectural firms, construction companies, preservation consultants and local governments. My photos have been published in the National Park Foundation's Complete Guide to National Landmarks, "National Landmarks, America's Treasures" the college textbook, "A Global History of Architecture" required in all accredited architecture programs, and I was the principal photographer for the "American Institute of Architects Guide to Kansas City Architecture & Public Art."

My goal is to present the architects' work as it was designed, without bringing in unnatural lighting schemes or imposing my own "vision" on the building.
