about the photographer


I am a fine art travel, landscape and nature photographer.  This is my photographic interpretation and collection of beautiful locations and people around the world.


From a very young age, I have been captivated by the world and nature.  Growing up in the Pacific Northwest gave me the opportunity to experience the sea, tall mountains, thick forests and the four seasons.  My playground was nature.  As a result, I grew up with a never-ending desire to explore.

Today, I venture down trails, through city streets, into canyons, along beaches, across deserts or wherever I can find all that is beautiful lands and people.  I choose to focus on all that is good in our ever-changing global world.  Through my photographs, I attempt to bring my experiences to you in the form of a photographic image.

My inspiration comes from more than the places I visit and desire to experience new landscapes and cultures.  I love books.  I collect the works of other photographers and artists.  I study those who came before me and are here making a difference today.  Their philosophies and their teachings help me to develop my own personal style.  I believe that my personal style is ever-evolving, changing and moving with the pace and experiences of our lives.


I sell my images in the form of fine art prints, canvas and gifts on Etsy.  I chose Etsy because I have complete control over the final print and product. 

All of my photographs are created in-house with the finest archival papers, ink, printers and materials.  I use a state of the art full-frame camera with high quality lenses to give me the results I'm looking for in a print.  I also use the latest post-processing industry software to create the final print.  

It is important to me that each photograph is of the highest quality and my customers are completely satisfied with each purchase.  I take great pride in my work knowing that people are enjoying my photographs in their home or office.  Each order is processed and packaged so that the final print is delivered in perfect condition.
