Exploring with camera in hand, Iâ€™m always in search of striking and intriguing compositions of natural landscapes, cityscapes, or hand built creations. Using light, moment, and color my goal is an emotionally powerful and deeply resonant photograph that allows you to feel as if you were experiencing these picturesque, and often remote, landscapes in person. My sincere hope is that the landscape photographs you see here convey at least a small sense of the majesty and wonder of these unique and special locations and that you enjoy viewing these images as much as I did creating them. Photography has long been a passion of mine and is a journey that began in earnest during a road trip across California during college. Using a small, 35mm, â€œpoint and shootâ€ film camera I was able to capture some of my first, quality landscape and mountain photos and I have been hooked ever since. Over the years cameras and equipment have come and gone, but my aim has remained the same â€“ to capture and share in a photograph the beauty of the natural and built environment that is all around us, but too often overlooked. Stunning fine art landscape photography requires both exceptional light and intriguing and inspiring subjects, leading me to seek out unique perspectives of dramatic landscapes during times of soft, beautiful light. I strive to capture interesting and striking elements of natural or built landscapes in such a way that you, as the viewer, are able to escape from your daily routine and feel as if you were experiencing these awe-inspiring moments and places in person. As an avid adventurer and outdoor enthusiast, I pursue photography for the pure fun of it. I absolutely love the happiness, creativity, challenge, and exposure to the natural and built environment that photography provides in return. Whether hiking a remote mountain peak, enjoying an alpine waterfall, driving a quiet rural road, or exploring cities and towns, my camera is always along for the ride. Although I have traveled worldwide, the spectacular and diverse landscapes of the western United States are some of my favorite locations to photograph. With seemingly endless subjects across varying seasons and conditions, the creative possibilities are almost limitless. Living in Colorado, many of my photos are of scenic Rocky Mountain landscapes, alpine lakes and waterfalls, or wildlife that I have enjoyed taking during various back country adventures. Through my landscape photography I endeavor to capture brief moments from the beautiful places I travel and I hope at least a small sense of their wonder comes through in the Colorado landscape photos and images from across the western United States you see here. For me, photography is a never-ending journey of exploration, education, challenge, creativity, and fun â€“ and one which I invite you to share with me.
