“I have been an enthusiastic hiker, backpacker, and admirer of the natural world as a source of balance in our often hectic lives since I was a teenager.  A camera has been a standard part of my hiking and backpacking equipment for over 35 years, but until 2011 was used more for personal “documentation” of my trips to beautiful places such as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Sierras, and the Swiss “Haute Route” than for serious photography. 

I decided to pursue fine art digital landscape photography in 2010, after a trip to Torres del Paine in Chile.  A February 2011 “Winter Light” workshop in Yosemite Valley taught by professional photographer Keith Walket led me to a new appreciation of the subtleties and beauty of light, and a passion to capture and share images of our wonderful natural world with others.  My hope is that these images give voice to the beauty of nature and allow the viewer to appreciate and discover more of the world around them.”
