I have loved photography for my entire life but became serious about it when I moved to Seattle, Washington back in the 80’s. While I don’t like to limit myself as to a particular “type” of photography, my main focus is on grand landscapes that reflect some of the most beautiful places on earth. My goal is to search these unique places out and bring back the beauty for all to see.

I currently live in the Portland Oregon area and travel throughout the Pacific Northwest and the Western United States looking for nature’s beauty. My hope is that my pursuits will inspire people to protect and save the few remaining natural places on this earth.

Artist’s Statement:

To me a successful photograph is not just beautiful to look at but also suggests a sense of wonder and ambiguity. They give the viewer a sense of awe, seeing a hidden place that most will never witness. Nature gives us the opportunity to find these great images just about everywhere and every day. However,it takes the vision of an artist to unravel them from their natural environment; mix them with the ever evolving light; and capture and preserve that moment for all to see.

I have a deep respect for this planet and ALL its inhabitants. It is my belief that through photography, people can gain a better respect for nature and encourage them to preserve it for future generations.
