I'vebeen fortunate to live in the Pacific Northwest nearly all mylife. I started enjoying our spectacular mountains as anavid hiker, but soon caught the climbing bug. I spentnearly every weekend doing serious scrambles at first, and thengraduated to technical climbing of both rock and glaciers. I've climbed most of the major peaks in our state, as well as peaks throughout Western North America.
I soon added a new piece of technical equipment to my arsenal -a camera system. Climbing ventures would never be the same again! Trips were no longer planned solely by the aesthetics of the climb, but rather the opportunities they would offer me to capture light and mood in a wilderness setting.
I currently reside in Renton, Washington and am in close proximity to Mount Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park, North Cascades National Park, Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, and much, much more. I often travel throughout Western North America as well, as evident by my gallery collection. I've authored my own book on photographing Mount Rainier, and enjoyed my own line of wall calendars.
My publishing credits include National Geographic, Backpacker, The Creative Company, Smith-Western Co., Impact Photographics,Tide-Mark Press, MeadWestvaco, Concord Litho, Vernon Publications, National Parks Conservation Association, Seattle Post-Intellegencer, and more. You can keep up with my current events by following my Blog.
I try to keep it updated with upcoming appearances, trips, recent publishings, etc., as well as offer previews of my most recent images. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I try to reply to all e-mails.
Hope to see you on the trail!
