Welcome, and thank you for having a look at my images of art. I’d like to introduce you to the natural world I know. Come follow along on my journey. Explore, consider, and take something with you. This is nature through my eyes. These photographs do not arise from any particular desire to see the world through a lens, but rather from my deep passion for this land we call wilderness. I wish to show you the amazing, beautiful and powerful forces that have created the Earth we live on.
We are well into a new and exciting generation of photography that is incredibly more limitless than ever before, and I embrace this.
How we see is a very personal thing. To this point, past It is an exciting time to be landscape artist. A great photograph is not merely documenting the scene at hand, rather it is about fusing the essential vision of the artist with the landscape.
While everything in nature does this for me, selecting just the right places and moments to make a photograph that conveys those emotions is far more difficult. My camera is one of the tools I use to achieve my final results, the images you see here. No one tool is perfect, however, and no one tool can make a great artist. It is an exciting process, and above all, a way for me to do what I love most, exploring wilderness and capturing it for you to see. Without wilderness, I would never have begun taking pictures.
I want you to know just how undeniably precious these lands are in their preservation. We NEED wilderness; now more than ever. The wilderness experience becomes ever more important to balance our lives as we become more industrialized and therefore bound within our own creations. This is because there exists within it a deep connection unlike anything that can be found in today’s intense world of instantly manufactured gratification. There is a certain freedom that comes only when we are immersed in the natural world. I come to the wilderness to experience something much greater than ourselves, and I hope you will too.
Thank you for taking this journey with me today.
