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.

Hope Beach

Hope Beach

Hope, Alaska formerly an old gold mining town located on the south shore of Turnagain Arm. I decided to head out and explore the area to see what opportunities it provided. I arrived a bit late as the sun was setting around 2 pm this time of the year. Shot with a camera that I was testing, back home I uploaded the images and left it at that. Several weeks later I returned to the folder, and this photograph caught my eye, and I felt that maybe it should be shared!
