about

I am a Santa Barbara, California based travel, stock and fine art photographer. My travels have included trips to five continents and all contiguous US states and Hawaii. I have been fortunate to have unique experiences that have included leading a group of California photographers to Siberia for 6 weeks as guests of the Russian government one-month before the fall of the Soviet Union; teaching on Semester at Sea while circumnavigating the globe visiting 11 ports of call; accompanying groups of college students through Europe on two occasions; and living in Japan for two-years. I frequently travel with my wife Martha Shilliday, a watercolor artist.


I am a career teacher, teaching photography from secondary school through the university level. I was a faculty member at Brooks Institute for over 15 years and following that served as the Provost at Brooks Institute for 11 years. Where one of my major accomplishments was to institute the MFA degree program. I have actively exhibited my artwork throughout my career both locally and nationally and my work is in three permanent museum collections. I am the co-author of two books on photography, "Black and White Photography" published by Delmar a division of Thompson Learning, Inc. and "Digital Photographic Capture" published by Focal Press in 2005. I am the recipient of a Michigan Council for the Arts grant for a traveling exhibition and catalog "Fugitive Color." I have been active in many professional organizations, including serving as President and a member of the Board of Directors of the Photo Imaging Education Association (PIEA). I earned the Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Michigan and the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Colorado where I was awarded Phi Beta Kappa. I served on the Board of Directors of Photo Access, a Silicon Valley startup.
