Some years ago while on a quest to find something both different and interesting to explore and photograph, I came upon a place buried deep in a quaint and quiet rural area. I had no idea what to expect when entering the property, but I was greeted by a charming and eclectic lady who lived in a house on the land. I kindly asked her if we could take a look around, she obliged and seemed very excited to have company on her land. She welcomed us with stories and the history of the place, showed us her animals including two awesome horses, and spoke of every “ghost” and soul still trapped there… needless to say it made for a very interesting time and a very cool place to take some pictures. I visited this mysterious lady a few times over the past few years and wanted to go again this springtime, but in trying to reach her I learned of her untimely passing. Her place has been emptied out, the animals gone, but I wonder if she has joined the souls on the property that she claimed visited her frequently.

Here is a small gallery of images shot a various times while visiting here.
Unfortunately a long-running chain of personal events has prevented me from updating my website or being involved in any photographic activities. However, recently it came to my attention that another “photographer” had copied my personal info and website description verbatim and embedded it into their own website. Why, I truly don’t know. I guess the feeling is both flattery and disgust. What I’ve come to find out from various sources is that this person has become well known for imitating other photographers’ work and also following them around. I have on occasion seen this person lurking and following me as well. Disturbing, to say the least. The proper authorities have been notified and legal action will be taken if any violations, both personally and professionally, continue.
I hearby declare that I am in no way affiliated with or work with any photographer other than myself. Any searches for me or my business name that lead to anywhere on the internet other than this website here (or other social profiles explicitly owned by me) have been manipulated and are false.
I’ve collected some recent infrared images together. These were taken at 650nm. Hope you enjoy…
It has been a long while since I have been a part of anything creative.
