I first visited Itasca as a young boy in the 1960s and like most youngsters I played in the water not really knowing the significance of where I was, all I knew was I was wet and having fun.
Unlike many of my friends I knew at a very young age what I wanted to do with my life. Many family members always were taking pictures and I followed them. In the third grade my school had a student art contest and I entered one of my photographs, and to my surprise I won first place, around this time I first saw the works of Ansel Adams, I was hooked.
In college I was studying plant science when I realized I did not want to continue on that corse and found Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. I earned my B.A. In Photography studying Industrial Scientific Photography and Color Technology in 1984.
After a year and a half working in Minneapolis I moved back to Walker, Minnesota to pursue nature photography full time.
I began to photograph the headwaters and eventually the rest of the park. In the spring of 1992 I was contacted by the gift shop manager about selling my work through the parks gift shops. And was asked to a meeting with the management, at that meeting I met the Park Manager, the assistant manager, the head naturalist and others. This meeting has resulted in a relationship with Itasca that is now entering its 26th year.
The challenge is how do you photograph the same things over and over without simply duplicating the past. Every thing changes with time. The rivers banks, the foliage, the level of the lake, the seasons and probably the biggest change comes from with in ourselves. Every visit is challenging and rewarding and I never tire of visiting the “Father of Waters”.
