I began keeping a personal journal at the beginning of 2014 as a way to document some events in my life and changes to my perspective on the world, and the people in it.  I don’t add much to this section of the site because I don’t have much to say to the public anymore.  When I do this is the place you can find it.

I’ve been a Ham Radio Operator since 1992.  In 2014 I built  an enormous station right in my backyard and recently earned the American Radio Relay League Worked All States (WAS) CW via the Logbook of the World.  This lead me to becoming a Morse Code instructor.  I’m an emergency communicator with several Federal endorsements.  I’m currently assisting the Pacific Maritime Mobile Service Network as a NCS on 15 meters.

Having a rich history in Photography, I wanted to take my talents to the next level. So I taught myself video production which included shooting, lighting, script writing, direction, editing and motion video graphics.  I worked in this medium for a number of years.  Now, it’s all for fun.

Taira Lamphere - The Most Wonderful Best Friend and Bride

My Wonderful Bride

When I take an exceptionally interesting image it’s normally of my wonderful best friend and partner Taira.  I catch hell all the time because she looks so young.  She’s, without a doubt, older than she looks.  I believe she’s the most beautiful, amazing and sexy lady on planet Earth.  She’s so wonderful that we have to deal with trolls who stalk us.  I guess it’s okay.  After all, We’re living rent free right between their ears.  Those interested, for whatever reasons, may have a look at my latest creations here. Guilt free…

Editorial / Photojournalism

Editorial photography is also known as Photojournalism and is simply a photograph that supports the printed word. That may be either news or advertising.  The photographs that go along with the articles – even the cover of the magazine. I’ve been shooting editorial imagery for magazines, television and educational media since 1995.  I know how to capture a story in imagery and I’m for hire.  Tell me what you need. I’ll get it for you… for a price.

The Adventures of ‘Texas’ the Cat

Radio Amateurs around the world are familiar with our buddy and love of my wife’s life ’Texas’.  Without fail, every time I get on the lower bands, pounding out Morse Code on my Begali Blade straight key, my buddy Texas interrupts me with fierce attack on my leg, arm, or whatever he can get a hold of, sending me into a string of ‘dits and dahs’ that make zero sense. Texas hates Morse Code and seems to be determined to end anyone sending it in his presence.
