For decades, I have been a commercial, fine art, and stock photographer who has simultaneously maintained a commercial studio in Oregon's northeast corner while sparing as much time as possible to photograph the western United States. I divide my time between selling services and selling images accumulated during years of travel with a backpack full of cameras.
My photos and writings have appeared in such national publications as Popular Photography and Outdoor Photographer and in books by National Geographic and Time-Life. My client list includes most of the major publishers of scenic calendars, and my photos have appeared on the front covers of both Audubon and Sierra Club Calendars, as well as on the covers of many other calendars, books, and magazines. Oregon Public Broadcasting's Oregon Art Beat television program profiled my photographic efforts in 2003. My prints can be found in galleries throughout Oregon.
From the beginning of my photographic explorations of the North American landscape nearly thirty years ago, my chief goal has been to build a comprehensive collection of definitive images of the Eastern Oregon scene, from the high volcanos of the Cascade Range on the west to the Wallowa Mountains on the east. When not prowling about in eastern Oregon, however, my cameras and I have frequently wandered north to Canada, south to Mexico, east to the Grand Tetons, and west to the Oregon coast and Washington Olympics.
