Photography As Seen Through My Lens

Welcome to the Heaterography website.  A little about my background.  I've been photographing off and on for most of my life.  I started back in 2004 playing with a Canon Powershot A40.  In 2006, I got my first true DSLR, a Canon EOS 30D with kit lenses.  In 2013, I decided to make a big jump up to a full frame Canon 5D Mark III.  As time as progressed since 2013, I have upgraded capabilities to include a Canon 5D Mark IV, and numerous lenses.   I have also dived into off camera flash, allowing myself to start booking weddings, family photos, and events where natural light is not enough.  

I haven't really specialized in any one genre of photography, I just enjoy handling a camera and photographing all things.  I tend to just let things happen, and take my photography wherever opportunities allow.  While I tend to do a lot of landscape, nature, and macro photography, I don't stop there.  I've done architecture, street, storm, weather, and some that doesn't fit a category.  I've done paid photography for clients, such as final construction photography for a 3 building medical complex here in town.  That was fun!  I've also done weddings, family photography, portraits, and events like concerts. 

In late 2019, I decided to move seriously into large format printing, using the highest quality fine art paper and canvas.  In early 2020, I built this new website with new and powerful capabilities, including a web store.
