As a landscape photographer, my goal is to create fine art that inspires you to travel and get outdoors every time you gaze upon the photograph. Through natural composition and color, that God has created, I work tirelessly in order to identify and capture some of the most beautiful natural places in the World, transporting you into that very scene of nature from the finest details of flowers in the spring, to the overall majestic mountain views in fall. I am truly passionate in my quest to visually communicate our natural World to you. I have captured fine art moments in sub zero temperatures in Alaska, hung from mountaintops 2,000 feet above the Blue Ridge and photographed under water in Australia in hopes that you too can find your own adventure travel on our truly magnificent planet in your office, living room or standing right next to me on my latest adventure.
