Photography is my first language. My home is the Pacific Northwest where the rugged, natural beauty and individuality of this region inspired and shaped my photography. As a Spokane, Washington photographer, my professional services are available across the Inland Northwest, including Spokane and Coeur 'd Alene.
In commercial photography, my work is licensed and used around the world, from corporate events and executive headshots to book jackets, location field work and advertising. Clients trust my judgment and work to meet their needs. Every assignment is a collaboration with the client to produce images on time and on budget that will serve their needs with distinction. I'm associated with AgeFotoStock, Alamy, and the legendary New York agency, Blackstar.
In fine art, contemporary best describes my style. I favor strong contrasts and colors. Many of the images are shot from positions that provide no margin for error in personal safety, and can take hours to reach. It is part of my philosophy of bringing the viewer inside the image to feel nature's elements from sun to spray to location, to interact with the image, not merely look at it, to feel an emotional connection while creating a personal memory and relationship. All of my nature work is produced with a deep and abiding respect for the environment. My images tend to result in large landscapes that can take from hours to months to produce. The end result is a fine art, limited edition print that is produced in a few select sizes, and prices, to make it possible for virtually anyone to enjoy in their own personal space.
