Welcome to my Flickr site!


I'm an amateur photographer out of San Jose, California. Most of my work consists of landscapes and night photography. I love the call of the night and I'm typically crawling in some shadow every full moon taking shots of old buildings, decaying military installations or some of those more famous structures in San Francisco, California.


However, I don't limit myself to the night. I enjoy snapping shot of whatever catches my eye under any condition. Sometime I can be found at the coast taking sunset shots or in the high sierras climbing some granite trail looking for some obscure landscape scene.


A little background on me...

My professional background is in business development with a focus on service management and project management. I recently finished my degree in computer science at San Jose State University located in San Jose, California and I hope to get back to work this year if all goes well. You can only watch the grass grow for so long.


If you're in the San Francisco bay area and want to go out on a shoot, let me know. I'm always looking to meet photographers, exchange ideas and enjoy the light of the night with a fellow nocturne.


If you happen to be on Yahoo Messenger, drop me a line. I'd love to chat and discuss the finer points of photography.


The Tahoe Guy code of photography standards….

•Periodically, I will produce outstanding works of art.

•Study learned treatises on 'real artists', their qualities, achievements, practices and heroic struggles, for the purpose of understanding how hopelessly short of their standards I fall.

•Constantly question, to myself and others, whether I and my work are good enough to ever be a world class artist.

•Mutter under my breath at least daily that someone will expose me soon.

•Cultivate brow-furrowing, chin-rubbing and other anxious mannerisms appropriate for artistic practice.
