Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my galleries. I hope you enjoy my photos that I have stored here. You can find all my galleries below in the All Photgraphs section. Or click on a gallery I have listed in my Featured Galleries section. I normally do not sell prints of my photographs, as I do photography for my own personal enjoyment. However, I have had a few requests for prints, so I have started to make a few available for purchase in the 'Purchase Prints' gallery below. If you find a photo on my sight and you really would like to get a print, let me know and I'll consider making it available in that gallery. I do have a great many of my photos available as computer desktop backgrounds that you can freely download for personal use only too. Go to that gallery below to see if there's anything you like!

The majority of the photos here have not been cropped or sized for printing or more focused viewing of the subjects. I opened my account here to host photos that family, friends, and others might enjoy viewing. I am especially flattered when our war veterans comment to me on a photograph they particularly like. If you are a war veteran and would like a printed photo, please contact me and I can make it available for purchase at cost and no profit to me. (You've earned it!)

The galleries here will be changing as I find time to photograph new and interesting things and can get them organized and uploaded, so please check back in the future when time permits to see what is new and updated. And before you leave, please feel free to sign my guestbook to let me know you stopped by.

I have been a hobbyist photographer for over 30 years. My interest and activity with photography has varied over this time but it has been since 2003 that it really caught hold of me. I have to think part of my interest in photography came from my mother, who we affectionately called "the camera lady", as she would see to it that no event in our lives growing up escaped getting at least a few moments of it captured on film. She understood the importance of family memories, even if we didn't at the time. As I got older, I got into photography because I enjoyed capturing the images and scenes that I came across. I found it fascinating, when on that rare occasion, you could capture a scene with your camera and have it look more dramatic or memorable than it was in real life. Or that you could capture a different perspective of a scene that could give a whole different outlook to the image. I find that today I enjoy photography every bit as much as I did when I started. And just like when I started, I still do photography for my own enjoyment and I'm very flattered when others find my photos enjoyable too.

I live in Pierre, South Dakota and work as a computer technology engineer. I enjoy nature and wildlife photography and also photographing different events and places. I enjoy photography very much and do it as much as I can (and my family allows!), and I hope to continue doing it for as long as possible.

Keith, I've soaked up as much as I can in one visit. Some make me laugh, some make me cry. I'll be back. This is beyond anything I imagined. Ann

Wow.. I am quite impressed by your photography skills, especially in the projects like macro and silhouette. And I really want to know how you managed to click those air show images, because using a high zoom index lens would obviously lead to shake, which I can’t trace here.

Hi Keith,

I work with Ray Hamman at Johns Hopkins University. I'm into photography as well and we often talk about photos and photography in general. He shared your website with me. You have some wonderful pictures out there!! Great job!
