Door Mouse Editions
Books and Photography
Welcome to the Web home of Door Mouse Editions! This is the site for my personal photography, and I’ve included here photos that highlight my wide range of photographic interests. These include sports, landscapes, flora and fauna photographs, some street scenes, and various events I enjoyed attending.
My interests also include sports photography, but those photos can be found at www.txsportsphotography.com. There, you can find photos from bicycle races, football games, martial arts events, trail runs, and pretty much any sporting event I’ve shot.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have won several awards for my photography, and some of these are included here. I enjoy the challenges of entering contests and seeing the results. Much can be learned from the other entries in contests, particularly from the winning images, even though the choice of winning images is so very subjective. I can appreciate the sometimes difficult task of picking a small group of winning images from what can be a large group of entries.
Tastes vary in all aspects of art, and what may appeal to one is discarded by another. Having said that, I encourage other photographers to take that step and enter at least one competition, and then to peruse the entries, if at all possible, and study what others have done and how they have done it. You just might learn something to help your own work!

On here, you’ll find links to some on-going projects including Raven Walk: A Photographic Journey Through Huntsville and The Pilgrimage for Life photo-essay books. These pages highlight some of the photos that are in these two books and provide information on ordering your own copy. In the case of Raven Walk, the pages also serve to provide some information about the photos, where they were taken, and how to get there.
