"Let There Be Light"

 

Biography

As a Minnesota based travel photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on travel, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural, and fine art work.

 

My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people’s emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams.

 

My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the décor of many fine homes.

Wayne's artistic eye is a gift to his audience and his colleagues alike. As a fellow photographer, I have had the pleasure of working with him as he seeks the right conditions for breathtaking photographs. His work tells the rest of the story: an arresting collection of some of the finest images I have seen.

Wayne has been my first contact in Flickr a couple of months ago. I was first impressed by his work on Minneapolis. I have lived there for 4 years, and did never see the city as beautiful as through Wayne's eyes. I see in his work such a sense of beauty and pictural perfection. A sense to capture things more beautiful as they really are. As a beginer on Flickr, I just asked him to provide some feedback on my shots. So he did. I asked him some technical info, so he did, very promptly! I really appreciate his presence on Flickr, and his visits on my gallery! Just a way to thank this awesome photographer and person!
