I create images that celebrate the spirit and beauty of the American Landscape, and like my father before me, photography is my passion and my career. There is a special quality to the endless variations of shadow and light on stone and rock, and the wondrous sight of clouds scattered by the wind that draws my attention. The exhilarating experience of discovering them in a unique way, at the precise moment of exposure, for me is always new.
I find my photography restorative, and often, while I’m travelling I am reminded that inspiration can come from unlikely places. In the world of solidity and structure, the silence of the desert and the forces of wind and water resounds with images that are stirring, touching, and profound.
I work with three cameras: a 4x5 Horseman, a Hasselblad, and a Nikon D800. My technique with the Horseman camera is necessarily deliberate and I enjoy the introspective process of looking through the ground glass and the ability to use the camera’s movements. I prefer the Hasselblad and Nikons when versatility and mobility are my priority.
