Creating fine images of life, art and business is my passion. I believe a good photo should be more than just a pretty picture. It should capture the essence of the subject and transport the viewer into the frame, helping the viewer relate to the subject in a new and different way. This is my guiding principle, and it is what I strive to achieve with every image I create.

I'm based in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area.

A little more about me: A few years ago, I completed hikes of the Pacific Crest Trail and Continental Divide Trail. Both are hiking trails thousands of miles long stretching through spectacular mountainous landscapes of the US from Mexico to Canada. More recently, I completed a hike across the interior of Iceland. I've written more about these trips and others on my personal web site, I also post recent photos, usually nature/landscapes, at this link.

I also own and operate:
