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, Imogen Cunningham,
and Ansel Adams.
In the best moments of my photographic work there
can be found an interplay between the wildlife
in relation to the existing light and my movements
to take advantage of this light. For me, finding
the mood that threads between the animal 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.
