I am a photographer living in Bratenahl, Ohio on Lake Erie. I have been shooting pictures since I was nine years old, when my father gave me an old Brownie camera. I took several photography courses in college during the 1970s when it was all about film and black and white. I have a Masters degree in Art and Consciousness with considerable work in Photography. There are things I miss about film. For one, I was more immersed in the "process" of creating photographs. 99% of my work today is digital because of convenience and what digital editing software can do.
I make part of my living as a photographer, shooting special events, creating table top photo books, giving talks about photography, and selling prints to corporations, hospitals, and some private collectors.

"Don is a very creative and imaginative photographer. This is why I keep coming back to his site day after day! I am terrible with words but I hope you can gather that what I am trying to say is that I look up to you and admire you. Having Don as a contact is one of Flickr's best rewards, and he is definitely one of my favorite people on Flickr. Thank you for posting and being a good friend:))"

"I'm always inspired by Don's view of the world which he captures in his photos so brilliantly. Each time I return to Don's photostream, I am treated to such eye-candy and am WOW'd by Don's talent as a photographer.
Don is such a positive force of nature and creates beauty in the spoken word as well as in his photos.
I am delighted and blessed to have found Don on Flickr and enjoy exchanging comments on our photostreams."

"Don is a fabulous photographer, and I feel that I've been privileged to see and learn from his work. I'm fairly new to this hobby, especially the digital end, and I've gotten a lot of good pointers from Don's super quality images. I look forward to continuing to learn from and enjoy it in the future."

"If he’s not busy kicking down Christmas displays or writing beautiful poetry, you can find Don outdoors capturing delightful images of the world around him in N.E. Ohio. He has an eye for beauty that only a poet and an artist can see. His photostream is a seamless integration of stunning and lovely photos, good humor, fascinating information, beautiful words and poetry. If I had to give just one award for the most improved photographer in flickr, hands down, it would have to go to Don. And the exponential increase in both his contacts and comments on his works is proof of that fact. Yet, despite his enormous list of flickr contacts, he always takes the time to visit your photostream regularly and leave genuine and often humorous comments. I am proud to author one of his first testimonials."

"Don's Waldlandschaften sind reine Poesie. Er versteht es, die Farben und Formen meisterhaft im Bild festzuhalten. Ein Genuß, seine Bilder anzuschauen.
Don's Woodlandpictures are pure Poetry. He knows, to take the coulors and forms into a picture. It is wonderfull, to see his pictures."
