“A good photograph is knowing where to stand.” – Ansel Adams
WHO I AM
“Growing up in a small town, there wasn’t a lot to do but get into mischief. I found myself discovering some very random places that I probably shouldn’t have been. Seeing things that others can’t or finding locations where most people wouldn’t think to look became an obsession. Capturing these on film with my father’s old Minolta 35mm was the first step in my journey. Through the course of growing up photography was always a passion, but often took a backseat to life itself and growing up. Rediscovering that passion has been quite an awakening. Obtaining that perfect shot, and scouting an awe inspiring landscape has driven me to go places I've only seen in magazines. I’m always ready for the next project or adventure, as long as I have my camera.
What’s next? There’s no good answer for that, but it’s gonna be one hell of a ride whatever it is!”
