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 creative and intellectual 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 in Denver, R Gallery in Boulder,
and Lincoln Center for the Arts in Ft. Collins.
Art consultants have appreciated my professionalism and broad portfolio of images for clients such as Lockheed Martin, Valley Bank and Trust, and Exempla St. Joseph Hospital. 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 stand behind the quality and value of my products.
