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. 

We must preserve 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, interconnected wild landscapes. 

I recognize Native American and Indigenous peoples as the longest serving stewards of the land, including all of the places featured on this website. I strive to be an effective ally to equitably resolve issues related to territorial rights, land management, sovereignty, and continued encroachment upon sacred sites.

I am based in Durango, Colorado, where I am grateful for the opportunity to explore the San Juan Mountains and surrounding areas. I acknowledge that I live and work within the stolen lands of the Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute) and Pueblo people. The land that I call home is also connected to the communal, hunting, and ceremonial spaces of the Jicarilla Abache (Apache), Hopi Sinom (Hopi), and Diné (Navajo) Nations.

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.


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.

Nature First

I am a proud member of the Nature First Photography Alliance and I’m dedicated to following the Nature First principles:

1. Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.

2. Educate yourself about the places you photograph.

3. Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.

4. Use discretion if sharing locations.

5. Know and follow rules and regulations.

6. Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them.

7. Actively promote and educate others about these principles.
