About Ted

I've always lived within walking distance of a lake. I grew up on a lake in Minnesota, went to college on a lake in Madison, and now live a few blocks away from the lake in Evanston.

Lake Michigan inspires me every day. I am driven to capture it at every opportunity — in any weather, season, or time of day.

My dual passion for photography and the lake achieves two important goals:

1) Helping people bring their love of the lake into their spaces in a dramatic and visually interesting way, and

2) Expanding appreciation for this powerful natural resource in our backyard.

Through my art, I aim to promote a love and respect for nature in general, and Lake Michigan in particular.

When you purchase one of my images, I hope it will evoke memories of moments spent on the lake, a new determination to enjoy it in the present, and inspiration to protect its health for generations to come.

I invite you to browse through my online galleries. If you are moved by something, contact me and we'll work together to find the perfect image and display method for you. I want our work together to be a meaningful collaboration.

Ted sees art all around him, creating striking scenes from places I may have been to but never noticed the beauty of in the way Ted can. I also really like the creative framing and mounting techniques, almost sculptural, that he uses.
