Bob started making photographs in 1954 in Sequoia National Park, California with a Kodak Brownie Twin Lens Reflex camera given to him by his father.  Most of Bobís first landscape images were made in the National Parks and Forests in the the Sierra Nevada Range of California, where he worked during the summers from 1954 to 1960 and the fall and winter of 1962 in Yosemite National Park, after a two year stint with the U.S. Army.


He continued with the National Park Service from 1963 to 1982 at Carlsbad Caverns, Sequoia & Kings Canyon and Olympic National Parks, as a Park Naturalist and Backcountry Ranger.  Bob and his family have lived in Port Angeles since 1965 and have explored  much of the Pacific West while camping, hiking and photographing in remote wilderness places.


Nature and landscapes have been Bobís primary subjects, with emphasis in later years on capturing impressions of seasonal conditions and light in the Pacific West with digital photographic equipment.
