Cool Breezes, Sweet Waters, Easy Trails

The Chisos Mountains In The Evening

Welcome to my website!

I was born about 24 miles outside the western entrance to Glacier National Park, and inherited my love of photography and the national parks from Dad, a photographer who captured amazing black & white images of the Montana landscape with his Mamiya twin lens camera.   My own first camera was a Kodak Instamatic given to me  one Christmas while I was in elementary school.  I purchased my first film SLR  while in high school.  I had heard whispers of something called a "digital" camera and my first thought was "why on earth would anybody want a digital camera??"    Then, I purchased my own digital camera (a HP-brand 2MP point-and-shoot) in 1998.   After that, I  never looked back to film.

My photography has been the instrument to meeting and working for some interesting people and organizations.  Since 2012, I've been a contributing writer and photographer for the National Parks Traveler , producing a monthly “Photography in the National Parks” column, as well as a series of “Armchair Photography Guides” and 3-day photographic itineraries to national parks I've  visited. I currently guest-post to the Traveler's own Instagram account @national_parks_traveler.

I have worked as staff photographer for The Merchant Prince, a vendor out at the Texas Renaissance Festival, and have also photographed portraits, weddings, families and other events, including a couple of Colombian dance troupes and portfolios for an aspiring fashion model and a belly dancer.

I love traveling and have visited and photographed in such places as London, Paris, Ireland, western Canada, Hawaii, Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Arizona, Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Montana, and Texas.  Parts of 2017 were spent photographing the snow-clad mountains of Glacier National Park in January, the Big Island of Hawaii in February, a Kemp’s ridley sea turtle hatchling release at Padre Island National Seashore in June, Mount Rainier National Park in July, and a return trip to Glacier National Park in September, where I captured images of moose, mountains and smokey sunsets during the Sprague forest fire.

Already, this 2018, I've traveled to Arches, Canyonlands, Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks.

This year is also the year for "Becky’s Big Move," when I'll take a photographic road trip journey relocating back to the Pacific Northwest, ready for whatever photographic adventures next await me.

Most of my photography on this website is for sale, with the exception of some galleries which are simply here to show you the quality and style of my work.  Those galleries will not have a "buy" icon, which should help you determine whether or not you may purchase anything in that gallery.

My website uses Bay Photo Print Lab and I can personally attest to the quality of the lab's work. I offer a wide variety of size and print choices (including metal prints) as well as merchandise options such as calendars, coffee mugs, photo journals, weekly planners and other items.

Have a look around my galleries to see my work and perhaps purchase an image or two to hang on your wall at home or at your office. Click on the menu options to visit my photographic blog site, my Facebook photography page, the National Parks Traveler site, or to contact me and say "hi."

Thanks again for visiting my site!  Here's wishing you cool breezes, sweet  waters and easy trails.
