I love my wife Tina, I love my son Caleb, I love my dogs Lu and Walter, I love photography and making beautifully crafted fine art prints, I love traveling but can’t wait to get home, I love my tiny peaceful home in the mountains, and I’m most at peace when I’m out in the middle of nowhere with my camera and my dog.” - Don Holtz
