I retired as a police officer/crash rescue firefighter in April of 1990. I have enjoyed photography since the mid 70's and crossed over to the digital world in 1996. Along with being the volunteer photographer for the Alaska Zoo the main focus of my photography is to show Alaska as it passes in front of my lens on a day to day basis. While viewing my albums be sure to look for lnks to Britt Coon's Smug Mug albums. She is becoming a great photographer in her own right and it has been fun watching her develop her skills for the last couple of years that we have worked together.

Caption: Sprint mushing in full swing in Alaska. This 10 dog team makes a good showing during the Raven Electric sponsored race at the Tozier Track in Anchorage. The morning had idea conditions for the dogs - 15 degrees F - and not quite warm enough for the likes of the photographer.
