About Me

Welcome to my short Bio which you will have to excuse as it really is SHORT. I'll be working on it more in the future. I hope what you find in my work is that I live to explore, appreciate, and to inspire others to do the same!


I am married to a wonderful woman, and father to two awesome kids. My wife is so gracious to let me journey out to capture God's creation. The older I get, the harder I've found it is to leave them at home to do this work, so it's clear to me that I'll just have to take them with me more and more!


I've been carrying a camera professionally now for decade and it's been a great journey. Not all of my work is wrapped up in what you see here, but in 2010 I opened a commercial photography business which has been such a blessing.


Since pursuing this craft with a mind of always improving my technique, I've won several awards that in my mind were well earned. A lot of sweat, some blood and a even a broken bone has gone into the making of my portfolio.  Stories that I try to tell, and some still too fresh to expose the mishap in venture.


Thank you for stopping and viewing my work. I truly hope that you continue to do so, but more importantly that you are inspired to explore and appreciate all that is around us.

In Flight

In Flight

Sometimes you just happen to be in the right place at the right time. However, there takes some effort in being in the right place at the right time. We woke up at 0330 and decided to try and beat the sunrise against the peaks of the Alaska Range. The weather looked dreary from the ramp as we fueled the small plane. The effort put forth rewarded us with a most wonderful morning vista. I guess you can't judge a book by it's cover, as the weather added to the elements of the captured image. God's creation is beyond my vocabulary and I think that maybe, just maybe a photograph can do it some justice. Thanks for viewing and have a wonderful day!
