I am a retired naval officer and amateur photographer who formerly resided in Las Vegas, NV, and now currently reside in Southern Utah.

My specialty is exploring and photographing old ghost towns, mining camps, and the back roads of the great state of Nevada. To date, I have explored and photographed over 150 of Nevada's ghost towns and mining camps. In addition, I have also explored and photographed a few of the ghost towns and old mines in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Utah, as well as photographed the desert scenery throughout our great southwest. Oregon Coast, Hawaii, many National Parks, and National Monuments, as well as several custom car shows. More of my Ghost Town and Old Mine photos are displayed on my website http://silverstateghosttowns.com.
