I love taking pictures. I've loved it since I was a kid, trying to figure out how to capture the vivid reds of a maple tree (not an easy task with a Kodak 126), or waiting for a squirrel to come into the light. I started photographing landscapes and wildlife somewhat seriously in 1994 (around when I discovered it's a lot easier to get those spectacular fall colors with Fuji Velvia slide film and a Nikon SLR).

I want to capture and share my passion for the outdoors in my work. I try to highlight the natural beauty of our National and State Parks, National Forests, and Wilderness Areas, and to help inspire conservation, preservation, and access.

I traveled quite a bit trying to find the perfect place to exercise my passion for the outdoors, mountains, climbing, and photography. I love the Pacific Northwest and settled down on Bainbridge Island where I live a full life with my wife and daughters - fledgling climbers and eager photographers.

I mostly use Olympus cameras and lenses. My primary camera is a well-used E-5. I carry a beat-up E-510 when I need a second body or a lighter camera. I use a Stylus Tough compact point-and-shoot on climbing trips where an SLR isn't practical. My favorite lenses are my Leica 25mm f1.4, Zuiko 50mm f2.0 macro, Zuiko 14-54mm f2.8-3.5, Zuiko 50-200mm f2.8-3.5, and the Zuiko 9-18mm f4-5.6.


I proudly support The Access Fund, The American Alpine Club, The Mountaineers, Washington Climbers Coalition, and Washington Trails Association. Climb on!
