For as long as I can remember I have loved the great outdoors. From a young age I have done everything I can to put myself outside. From working for the boy scouts in the Unita's and the Tetons, to teaching survival classes to troubled youth on the outskirts of Capital Reef National Park. As I have been outside, I have witnessed some of the most spectacular scenery in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming. I often felt a strong desire to bring family members, and friends to these natural wonders.
In 2008 my sister gave me one of the greatest gifts of my life, a Canon dslr camera. Since that time I have endeavored to revisit these sacred spots and bring them back to my family and friends. In order to do this I have done everything I can to learn the skills of "fine art photography". I have taken several photo workshops with Utah's landscape photographer Willie Holdman, read many books, taken online courses (creativelive.com) and have familiarized myself by experience. I feel compelled to chase good light, seek the perfect composition, and enjoy people.
Now I have a desire to share these skills with friends and family through taking pictures for them and of them. My favorite photo shots involve both friends and the great outdoors. Although all of my pictures don't include people, they are often with me physically or in my thoughts.
