About Me

Over the years, my passion for the outdoors naturally led to my passion for photography. The more I found myself in the wilderness, the deeper my desire grew to share the experience of nature with others. 

As photographer and videographer for The Wilderness Society, I'm extremely fortunate to have found an application for my work. My ultimate goal has always been to inspire people to not only connect with, but to protect wild places. 

It is imperative to protect as much of the natural world as possible as the climate changes at an accelerating rate. Wild places foster biodiversity and provide critical habitat for countless species in the face of an unprecedented extinction crisis. Our collective long-term resilience depends on maintaining a system of large, connected wild landscapes. 

I am currently based in Durango, Colorado, where I enjoy exploring the San Juan Mountains and surrounding areas.

My Approach

I've always subscribed to the notion that an image is only half-complete when the shutter clicks. Most of my images are carefully processed in the effort to convey the experience of a scene as close as possible to how I remember it. I use a combination of  in-field and  post-processing techniques in order to convey my interpretation of a scene. I'm constantly learning and working to refine my craft, and my process is something that changes almost every day.

Publications

My images have been featured by a number of publications and organizations, including: Google, Apple, Patagonia, REI, PBS, US Airways Magazine, Bloomberg Businessweek, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, Landscape Photography Magazine, National Geographic (web), New York Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, SF Gate, San Francisco Travel, Bespoke Magazine, National Park Service, National Park Foundation, Institute at the Golden Gate, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, The Wilderness Society, and more.

Thanks so much for taking a look at my site. I hope you enjoy!
