Wildlife set up, Nikon D500 + Nikon 200-500mm

First let me thank you for your time and interest in my work.

A little about me. I am a father, a veteran, and a photographer who happens to be lucky enough to live and work out of the great state of Idaho. Photography was not something I ever imagined I would find myself doing. Art never even crossed my mind until I picked up a camera at age 38 looking for a hobby. However, once I felt the power and emotion an image could create not just within myself but the people around me, I was hooked.

 Ok, kind of opening up here. So here goes… Art Classes… ZERO, Official Photography Education… ZERO, Hour spent researching, putting in the leg work, reading books, studying painters, photographers, and hands on in the field work… COUNTLESS

With much more to come.

 My approach is simple,

I keep my images clean with as little post processing as possible. Call me old school or a naturalist but through a light post process workflow all my images are true to the scene which I believe helps in accounting for the emotion felt while creating an image. Printing my images at home in my studio I am able to bring my creative visions full circle, into something tactile I am able to hold in my hands that is no longer confined to a screen. The printing process is an art unto itself. From print size to paper selection. This process to me is as integral as creating the image itself.

With over 150 years of history Canson Infinity is my choice when it comes to the selection of fine art paper. All my custom prints are printed exclusively on Canson Infinity fine art papers either by me in my studio or from a trusted printmaker.
