I am a semi-professional outdoor adventure and landscape photographer. Photography is a major component of my adventures in the outdoors. My true passion is in the backcountry, and most of my photos were captured well off the beaten path, whether on multi-day backpacking adventures, backcountry ski trips, or sea and river kayaking expeditions. I am based in Seattle, Washington in the upper left corner of the United States, and many of my photos were captured in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. That said, I spend a lot of time on the road and am lucky to have carried my camera to beautiful places throughout the American west and around the world. My photos attempt to capture the natural beauty of the outdoors and the human spirit on display in the outdoor environment that has become such a big part of my life. As far as the semi-professional part, I don’t make my entire living selling photos, but I am honored to have sold a handful, and I am gradually turning this hobby into a legitimate business. I believe strongly in supporting the non-profit organizations that are fighting to protect the natural places where these photos were taken, and I am happy to donate photos that help support environmental causes.
