I got my first camera at 5 years old. That was the beginning!
I picked up my first camera at the age of 5. My father gave me the gift of a German 120mm roll film camera and a small black and white enlarger. With great patience he would help me process and print the images I captured. By the time I was 7 I was making photos on my own, capturing my friends and family. (That’s me with my first camera)
Out of the basement darkroom came small glimpses of my emerging future; prints that showed an appreciation for the constantly arising visual world around me. My life long passion for capturing the beautiful and poignant moments of life had been born.
Interest continued to emerge in photography and art throughout my youth. Through a circuitous route of living, studies and travel in Missouri, Colorado, California, Hawaii, Australia, the Philippines, China and Tibet, I have made my home in Livingston, Montana; still constantly in search of “beauty… as it occurs naturally”.
Over the years my professional career has taken me on a path through wedding, commercial, advertising, and food photography. Then 15 years ago I went back to my beginnings in wedding photography.
Today, I travel around Montana and beyond, photographing for my wedding clients. This gives me the perfect opportunity to continue to make images of this amazing place that I call home. MONTANA… from top to bottom, from Glacier National Park to Yellowstone National Park this is Big Sky country!
Enjoy the view! Larry
