The first time I saw one of Walter's images, my mouth fell open.
Not only was it masterfully composed and exquisitely shot...it was the concept, the IDEA of the image that captured me. As a professional photographer for 28 years, I am rather hard to impress but Walter's images keep me constantly enthralled. His vision and execution are an inspiration to all of us who love photography.

The thing that tells me the most about his work is that when I see one of his images, it makes me want to go out and take photos. His work inspires the artist in all who view it. Whether it is the simplicity of a building, a busy freeway, or a stark landscape, Walter always seems to find the beauty and show it to us in a bold and colorful way.

We are fortunate indeed, to have such a talented artist among us.
