As a professional photographer, I pursue photography for the pure fun of it and the happiness, challenge, creativity, and exposure to the natural and man-made world that it provides me in return. My camera has become an essential element while on remote mountain hikes, exploring cities and towns or when traveling the country and around the world. When I shoot, I seek to capture interesting and striking elements of the natural or man-made world in such a way that the viewer has an emotional connection to the image and is able to escape from their daily routine and feel as if they were experiencing these awe-inspiring moments and places in person.
My photography primarily focuses on my observations of the landscape – both natural and man-made. While I have traveled worldwide, the spectacular and diverse landscapes of the western United States are some of my favorite locations, due to their seemingly endless subjects and creative possibilities in varying seasons and conditions. As a result, while my portfolio contains images from across the United States and around the globe, it has a particular emphasis on the United States.
