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