My passion for the outdoors is what motivates me as a photographer. I am humbled when I think about the world in which we live and the forces at work carving out the natural landscape. My photographs have a distinct graphic quality. I tend to emphasize the geometry in nature; strong lines, contrast, shape, and texture are all prominent features in my work. Thematically, I am drawn to the power and solitude found in the wilderness. I see it as my role as a nature photographer to go the extra mile and bring back compelling images that make the viewer appreciate the world around them.
