As a small child, maybe five or six years old, I was enchanted watching images slowly appear on paper as they developed in my older brother’s darkroom. Sometime about then my father gave me my first camera. That initial childhood wonder with photography has permeated my soul.
I am primarily a self-taught photographer. My brother and several other photographer companions have been my mentors and foils over time.
My photographic interests, for the first several decades of picture taking, focused principally on trying to capture the wondrous beauty of nature. My ongoing quest to create impactful images has motivated me to broaden my interests. Portraiture and people in action have become fascinating and complicated subjects for me.
My images have been published in Arizona Highways, Backpacker, Sierra, National Parks, Alaska Airlines, Scientific American, Running Times, Canadian Running, Plateau, Outside, High Country News and in books made by Falcon Press and Island Press.
