Artist Statement

In my photography I strive to create works that capture the beauty of the American landscape and convey the spirit of our nation's cherished wild places. The mysterious spiritual connection of spending extended amounts of time with nature allows me to create images that showcase the land in all its amazing beauty. Similar to a Buddhist's reverence for nature, I try to sense the permission of the land before making an image. This rapport with the wild results in spectacular one of a kind images. My mission is to promote knowledge and understanding of our nation's natural wonders. I hope to inspire others to work together to save nature's places for future generations. Shooting with a 4x10 view camera creates images of unparalleled sharpness and clarity. Even my largest prints at 96" are so clear that you feel like you're standing in the scene.
