I started taking photographs many years ago to aid in the memory of my adventures in the outdoors of Idaho, Montana, and Alaska. Over the years my work has evolved from simple snap shots of the long ago film days into a deep artistic study of light and mood in the digital age. I have been deeply influenced by the works of Edward Weston, George Catlin, Galen Rowell, and Ansel Adams.
In the best moments of my photographic work there can be found an interplay among the environment, the existing light, and my interpretation of the two. For me, finding the mood that threads between the light and the environment is where the true elegance of artistic photography lives. I would like now to invite you into the fleeting seconds of this light and mood.
