about the artist
I photograph. What more can I say?
I guess I can say I am a biologist working with freshwater fish, invasive species and the impact that man has on the environment. I am currently studying at BYU working on a MS degree. My work focuses on Lake Powell because I am a desert rat through and through.
Beyond this, I am a photographer that has mainly focused on the desert southwest, with an emphasis on Zion and Escalante. I have been in three galleries across southern Utah, been published in two magazines, been a contributing author to Improve Photography, Featured on the Master Photography podcast (at the time Improve Photography podcast) and Photog Adventures. I have also had my work seen by thousands of individuals at art shows across the state of Utah. I currently have work within many businesses across the state.
As for my work, it has evolved over the years to focus on the moments that few observe. My favorite is when the audience is me and those who view the photo. I seek isolation within my photography. I seek dramatic skies, interesting weather, and great color. I am often pushing myself to further reaching locations. This often means that I have a mix of iconic views, scattered with locations that few recognize at all. This is the way I like it.
