Artist's Statement

My photographs celebrate the beauty and color of the world around us, from the sun’s first light shining on a serene mountain scene with wildflowers at peak bloom to skyscrapers looming over a bustling urban landscape at dusk. Each image is the result of hours, or often days, spent exploring and patiently waiting for conditions to align, frequently requiring several trips to the same location. When the weather, light, and other environmental factors all come together, my camera gives me the opportunity to share my perception of that experience with the world through my photos. I am especially excited to capture and share images of the Pacific Northwest, my home since being lured here by the beauty of the landscape in 2008.

While there have been numerous and significant improvements to camera technology over the years, there is often still a great disparity between the raw image from the camera and what I saw when I was actually at the location. Today’s digital darkroom allows me to process each image in a way that faithfully replicates what I personally experienced when I captured the photo. While this process undeniably reflects my personal interpretation of each photograph, my goal is to remain honest to the original scene as I experienced it. I am grateful to have the opportunity to share these experiences with the viewers of my photographs.

My photographs are available for purchase on metal, canvas, and traditional paper prints. Please contact me for information on purchasing prints, for licensing inquiries, or if you have any comments or questions. Thank you!
