He has used those skills to create photographs that speak to viewers on an emotional level through their composition and content.
While he is most well known for his Prairiescapes®, he has also created a variety of other major collections including Cityscapes, European and China. He also has an extensive University of Illinois collection showcasing the beauty of his Alma Mater. Five critically acclaimed collections of his images have been published and a sixth book, Barns of Illinois, is scheduled for release in fall 2009. Each year he publishes an award-winning Prairiescapes calendar as well as a University of Illinois calendar.

Really outstanding capture of the beauty of the environment in central plains. Employees knowledgeable, pleasant and efficient. Friendly place! Deserves more attention.
