Thanks for stopping by. 
I am a former U.S. Navy Photojournalist and Aerial Photographer. I am grateful for the education I received, the experience of seeing the world through my lens, AND for getting paid to do so.  I was fortunate to make a living photographing literally, thousands of assignments, over a 47-year span.  I am officially "Retired" but still actively creating images of my adopted home. (I escaped from Southern California in 2007)
"Newport Captured" was originally intended to be a video compilation of my Time-lapse clips, and HDR images, shot in and around Newport, Oregon.  I am expanding my interests to include; drone cinematography, video editing, and production. My hope for the future is to eventually produce a short film or series of films featuring my romanticized vision of my adopted hometown. 
Join me as I continue my experimentation with this art form and the community that I am so passionate about. I will post updates to the project as weather and time allow me to do so. I sincerely hope that you enjoy these images as much as I enjoy being out in the community creating them.
Although this is primarily a "Personal" project, the reality is, it's an expensive hobby that requires funding.  I achieve that by selling a few prints, licensing stock images for commercial use, and accepting a few interesting assignments per year.  If you like my images, please consider supporting my endeavors by sharing them with your family and friends.
