About

My joy and opportunity to share with others the wonders of our creation through the camera lens.

I was born In the mid west in 1945 shortly after World Was 2. Shortly after my birth My mother moved my brother and I to Long Beach, California Where I spent my early childhood.

I attended Biola University in La Mirada California where I met my lovely wife Susan who was a nursing student also at Biola. She also received her BS degree in nursing.

After graduation from college where I majored in sociology and received my BA degree, Susan and I moved to Southern Oregon where I took a position as a probation officer with the Josephine County Corrections Department.

My vocational background over the next twenty some years primarily was focused in the area of recreational vehicle sales. In 2000 I ended my vocational career after I was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and was put on disability.

The past fifteen years I have worked part-time as a school bus driver doing field trips and athletic trips for the local school district.

We have two lovely daughters married and six beautiful grandchildren which are the delight of our life. Our oldest granddaughter, Mandy graduated from high school and is currently in Argentina working with Word of Life as a counselor. She also is an avid photographer and hopefully soon will open her own Etsy shop to feature her photography.

Photography has always been Susan and my first love. Living in the Great Northwest has given us a wonderful opportunity to explore the beauty of the creation around us and to capture it through the lens of the camera.

I have used as a means of showing my work in several different media. I initially began by promoting photo cards through different vendors in Oregon of our local beauty from the sea to the mountains and desserts. I then focused on Photographic Pendants. This was a bit of a challenge and through trial and error I finally came up with a method of not only making the pendants so that they retained the photographic beauty of the scene but without the problems of small inperfections, small bubbles. The other issue was finding a way to display the pendants through a light box media that gave a true representation of the individual pendant. The vast majority of the material I use for the pendants ie the cabs, glass domes and chains are purchased from fellow Etsy sellers. I am now adding Photographic prints to my selections which will be done by a local printer who has a tremendous reputation here in central Oregon.

It is my hope and objective that our shop captures in some part the beauty of Gods’ handiwork around us and portions of Scripture to uplift the heart.

Comments and suggestions are always welcomed and If I can meet a special request feel free to contact me.
Enjoy browsing through my Shop

Thanks for stopping by and checking us out. We are new to the Etsy Family and excited to open our shop. Our primary focus on this site is to promote quality hand crafted photo cards with a message. We combine photos of our magnificent creation here in the Great Northwest along with meaningful texts desgned to inspire and uplift. Most but not all are passages from Scripture that I have found to be especially comforting and uplifting. I am a Christian who believes that our ultimate source of faith and hope lies in Jesus Christ.

Our photo cards are made of high quality card stock, by Leader Paper products which is a perfect fit for both printing and photo applications. The card stock is “natural” .

Card size is approx. 5”X7”, Photos are 4X6 and includes matching envelope. Most all photos have been taken by either my wife or myself with the exception of several from Sue Bradshaw, my mother in law. Who is an avid photographer in her own right.
