I'm a fine art landscape photographer from Portland, Oregon. Photography is a great way for me to enjoy the beautiful world in which we live. I like to shoot a wide variety of subjects, but my favorite subjects are those found in nature. I have always had a close relationship with the nature, and my images reflect that relationship.
I seek out locations such as these to experience true wilderness, away from crowds, cities, and the stress of everyday life. Visiting these wild areas is a form of meditations for me, where I get to completely relax and appreciate the incredible beauty of nature. Iíll wait all day at a location to be able to photograph it in perfect light to capture the essence of a place. Being able to capture this beauty and share it others is what photography is all about for me.
These photographs are glimpses I've had of incredible beauty, hopefully they can help inspire and help raise awareness about conserving these amazing and shrinking wilderness areas.
One of my goals is to raise awareness about conservation of the beautiful places I photograph. I encourage everyone to watch Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, the most important movie of our time in my opinion. Here's a link to the movie site www.climatecrisis.net
