About me

Welcome, Thank you for visiting! I hope you enjoy the pictures I've chosen to display. Most are for sale as high-quality professional prints, wall art, or keepsakes.


The Pacific Northwest is a playground for any photographer lucky enough to call it home. It's no surprise that a majority of my work originates from the beautiful places that are within a couple of hours' drive from Seattle. I love to travel across the US and around the world as much as in this corner of the continent. Having been raised in the city where nature like this seemed like a fantasy, I believe that its conservation is crucial so that our children and their children may one day experience the world the way we always have - more than just through pictures.


Other photographers often ask about the gear I use. I've recently added a Sony a7RIV  to my Canon 5d Mark III. Most shots are taken with Sony FE 24/70 f2.8 GM, Sony FE 100/400 F4/5.6 GM, and Canon 16/35 f2.8  lenses although I sometimes rent more exotic glass like such as the Sony 12/24 F4 or the Canon 600 F4. I use the Wine Country filter holder and set, a Gitzo tripod and a Right Stuff ball head. There‚Äôs a lot of good used gear online on eBay and at reputable Seattle area stores such as Kenmore and Glazers Cameras. Those latter two offer rentals which is perfect to try before you buy, or when usage does not justify the investment.There are many online options as well, making easy to get gear wherever you are.

My workflow is based on Adobe Lightroom to organize, edit, and publish to this site on SmugMug. My images are converted from RAW and edits typically include cropping, light and color correction, and sharpness adjustments.


Content is added regularly, so keep coming back for new galleries and vistas.


I've recently started to add EXIF data (camera, lens, exposure) to the photo captions as well as GPS location.  I believe in sharing and learning from one another. I hope you enjoy the extra information and that it contributes to improving your photos skills.   Note that not all content is updated yet but it is my goal to do so.


Feel free to download your favorite images for your own use (such as a desktop image or screen saver). Keep in mind however that all are protected by copyright law. Contact me for any reproductions or commercial use.
