The path that I have chosen to follow as a photographer has taken me the length of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, to Sudan, the Soviet Union, Brazil, Hawaii, and to various places around the great Pacific Northwest. It was over this time that I made the transition from film to digital photography.
Following the Northridge earthquake and 9/11, I voluntered to serve as a Documentary photographer where I was able to document pertinent and sensitive images for internal purposes for a wide variety of Federal, State, Local, and Tribal agencies and organizations. Among those who were the recipients of my photography have been the White House, the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, the National Disaster Medical System, the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the Center for Asymmetric Warfare, and to various law enforcement and emergency management agencies located throughout the Pacific Northwest. And between 2013 and 2017 I also served as the photographer for both the Northwest and the National Tribal Emergency Management Councils.
Although documentary photography is important to me, I have also enjoyed using my skills as a nature and fine art photographer to "document" nature and some of the scenes in life that I have had the privilege to visit. One of my greater joys in life however, is when people take time out of their busy lives and spend a few moments looking at the images that I have taken. It is my hope that by sharing some of my photographs with them and they see different places, interesting people, and the beauty of nature that surrounds us all that I have managed to make their life a little richer.
Thanks for stopping by.
