Under The Open Sky With My Cameras

Looking Down Into The Amphitheater

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.  For 10 years, while living in southeast Texas, I was the staff photographer for the Merchant Prince, a vendor at the Texas Renaissance Festival. I've photographed weddings, portraits, groups, families, events, and portfolios. 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 traveled to, and photographed in, such places as London, Paris, Ireland, western Canada, Hawaii, Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Arizona, Washington, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, and Texas.  In 2018, I visited a total of 9 national parks and 1 national recreation area. That same year, I moved lock, stock and tripod from Texas to return to the Pacific Northwest where I have family in Central Washington. My dream of returning to the West has been fulfilled, and I couldn't be happier.


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 happy trails under an open sky.
