I am a landscape photographer who explores his
curiosity for phenomena and processes of the natural world through abstract
Born into the nomadic life of a military family in
California, I credit my childlike curiosity about the phenomena and processes
of the natural world that drive my career as a landscape photographer to a
childhood exploring rocky coastlines, playing under forest canopies, collecting
rocks and sticks, swimming in lakes, and fishing in streams in which nature
nurtured my budding environmental ethic.
When I grew up, degrees in landscape architecture from University
of Oregon and geology from Portland State University provided the intellectual
and creative foundations for my lifelong integration of creativity, science,
nature, and culture that now I pursue daily.
Among my achievements as a photographer, I have been most
proud of my association with land conservation organizations such as Sierra
Club, Wilderness Society, and Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts, who have
worked to set aside land for future generations, wildlife habitat, and healthy
ecosystems by using my images of some of my most cherished and wild landscapes
in their fundraising campaigns.
My most personal and imaginative images have shown in solo and group exhibitions in Colorado’s distinguished galleries and venues, such as Denver Performing Arts Complex and + Gallery/Cordell Taylor Gallery in Denver and Lincoln Center for the Arts in Ft. Collins.
Corporate collectors in Colorado include Lockheed Martin (Denver), Valley Bank and Trust (Brighton), and Exempla St. Joseph Hospital (Denver). Commercial clients such as the States of Colorado and Wyoming and Denver Post have used photos from a few of my favorite road trips to promote travel throughout the western United States, and a photo from Great Sand Dunes National Park has even graced an album cover by Colorado musician Janet Feder.
From my home in Boulder, Colorado, I still recall the
travels of my youth fondly and frequently seek my local mountains, streams, and
forests and destinations around the world to further explore the natural
elements my curiosity discovers.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stands behind the quality and value of my products.
Since 2016 my camera of choice is a digital Nikon 35mm SLR and a variety of Nikon lenses. My present camera body is a Nikon D810. My favorite lens is my 70-300mm, which enables me to zoom in and crop out all distracting elements.
My digital darkroom consists of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, in which I complete my vision following image capture. I process with as little digital manipulation as possible because I like to keep the process simple.
