Thank you for spending time visiting my galleries!
My desire to photograph the world's most spectacular locations results from a life long drive to explore the larger world through travel and adventure. For over fifteen years I have explored my backyard wilderness in the Pacific Northwest, making pilgrimages to the region's most beautiful locations. These trips have ranged from weeklong traverses of the North Cascades, to midnight starts to summit glaciated volcanos, to rambles along the high desert plateau. At the heart of these adventures lies my desire to be surrounded and engaged by North America's most beautiful scenery.
Beyond the Pacific Northwest, this same thirst for new places and experiences has led me around the world--three jaunts to the Himalayas and a year-long journey through South America. I have had the great fortune of photographing many of the world's great mountain ranges, from the granite spires of the Patagonian Andes to the planet's highest peaks along the Himalayan crest.
Photographing my travels and adventures has always been an important part of each experience. Wherever I traveled I kept a camera in hand, taking thousands of images which aim to capture the magical moments that inevitably occur while moving through Earth's most magnificent landscapes. My photographic approach has always focused on translating the emotional experience of being alive and engaged in the larger world into the photographic medium. In this way I hope to bring the viewer along on the journey with me. This journey has proven to be every bit as exciting, humbling, and satisfying as climbing any Cascade peak, or visiting some distant land previously known only to my imagination.
