Description St. Crispins Day speech from Henry V (1599) by William Shakespeare WESTMORELAND. O that we now had here But one ten thousand of those men in England That do no work to-day! KING. Whats he that wishes so? My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin; If we are markd to die, we are enow To do our country loss; and if to live, The fewer men, the greater share of honour. Gods will!

Then shall our names, Familiar in his mouth as household words- Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter, Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester- Be in their flowing cups freshly remembred.

His best work comes from images first painted in his mind. He mulls over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture, he takes action. The result is images that deeply touch a person's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams.
His images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary. The images are used to communicate their shared vision and values. Book, magazine and calendar publishers have featured his images in their publications and on their covers. His photographs also grace and enhance the décor of many fine homes.
