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.

The High One Awakes

The High One Awakes

Following the early morning shot "The High One Sleeps" I waited at the edge of Wonder Lake to get one final shot of Denali. I knew it was going to be a beautiful scene with fog on the lake and alpenglow destined for its peaks. I moved my composition to add some frosted tussocks and a patch of ice floating on top of the water. It was a grand view and I felt that it would be neat to add the two as a series. Little do most know, the two white objects in the water just left of center, are two swans with their heads under in search of a morning breakfast.
