I would like this website to be a place where people can come to find a state of silence and wonder in the images of the natural world. These images take the viewer on a journey that is not just outward but also to a place that is inward. I hope these images will help to appreciate the little things of our world that normally go unnoticed; the remarkable geometry of plant growth patterns or the calming pleasure of the elements: land, water, and air. Seeing in this way may help us appreciate these things in our encounters in the real world.
Beyond the artistic aspect of photography I would like to apply my work in the field of conservation photography. I want to inspire people to protect the natural world as a whole, from the smallest bug to the largest tree. Throughout nature there is perfect balence. Our ancient ancestors knew how to live in balance with the environment at one point. Although there is a much larger population today, our civilization does have the advances in technology that could help us live in harmony with the natural world if we choose to. To keep this balance is to honor the underlying force that gives us all life.
My present goal is to spend a few years documenting the region of California and the Southwest. With the recent drought and climate change it is important to document this moment in time. I want to not only show the effects of climate change on our forests and environment but also get a chance to document what is still healthy and thriving and adapting. If you like my work please consider purchasing some prints from the store section of this website. Any purchases will help to further more photo journeys.
