GeneralMy interests are many and varied and whenever I am called upon to list my hobbies I invariably seem to miss a few. However primary among my interests is photography. For many years I was generally a landscape photographer however several years ago I discovered that I had an aptitude for creating beautiful photographs of women. These days my photography is primarily glamour and occasionally art nudes, but I also shoot some of the finest Northern Lights photos you will ever see.
I am also interested in amateur radio, astronomy, history, anthropology, and firearms. I used to be passionate about flying and over the years I have owned several airplanes. Unfortunately about 15 years ago I developed a neuromuscular disorder which grounded me.
MusicMy musical interests generally fall into two categories, Classical, and "Classic" rock. I enjoy Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Dvorak, as well as various other works of that period and some of the earlier composers such as Beethoven. Of the Rock era, some of my favorites are Creedence, The Guess Who, The Rolling Stones, The Mamas and the Papas, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Dr. Hook, Led Zepplin, Heart, and ZZ Top. ..
BooksI love books and generally try to read at least one book per week. During the winter months when it is too cold to do much outside, I may often go through a book a day. I prefer history and will read about almost any period, but my specific interests are the history of the Northern Great Plains, Depression Era Midwestern Crime, Medieval Europe, and military history. I also read a great deal of anthropology, general science, and Catholic theology.
I seldom read fiction however I do enjoy Tom Clancy novels and the works of Jon Hassler, who I regard as America's greatest novelist.
In addition to a great deal of reading I am also trying to write a couple of books. ..

About me:I shoot glamour and fine art photography and am located near Minot, North Dakota.
Who I'd like to meet:Who would I like to meet? As a photographer I am looking for models who would be interested in working with me. I am not necessarily looking for the stereotypical tall, tanned, and blonde model that many people often associate with the industry. I prefer working with average girls who have not had much, or any, modeling experience. It has been my experience that they are much easier to work with and have a much more pleasant attitude towards the work.
As an individual, I am on myspace in the hope of developing professional contacts in all areas of the arts. I generally tend to work alone, so even tough my work is seen by many people around the world, I don't actually meet that many people.
And last but not least, I would like to find a woman willing to share my life. I live in a huge house on a peaceful hilltop far from town. I love it out here and can not imagine living anywhere else. But I have grown tired of living alone. I have been engaged a few times over the years to some wonderful women. But as much as I loved them, I realized that we were not compatible enough to make it work over the long run.
I am realistic enough to understand that the chance of finding someone on a site like this is quite remote. But I have not entirely given up hope. The woman I am seeking must share my spiritual values, and she must be emotionally secure enough to not feel threatened by my art. She need not be well educated but she must be intelligent, and I do find artistically creative women attractive.
