About Us

We are a husband and wife team who met on the trail in 1975 during a semester course in the Rocky Mountains with the National Outdoor Leadership School. We have been hiking partners ever since, along the way raising a son and daughter and pursuing careers in college teaching and developing early literacy programs for a public library, respectively. 

About Our Photography

The name Trailside Photography reflects the vantage point from which most of our images are made—along trails through nature preserves and parks. We currently call the eastern hardwood forests and prairie remnants of Ohio home, but to date our photography has taken us across North America—as far west and north as Alaska, south to Florida and the Caribbean, and east to the Canadian Maritime provinces—as well as to southwest England.
