About The Photographer

I'm a self-taught photographer. Living and working in Montana, "the last best place", which continues to fuel my passion for finding the images that tell a story and evoke emotions. A former outfitter and current ranch manager, I have zeal for wildlife, mountains and horses. All three make up the things that represent who I am. Spending time in the wilderness on a mountain or roaming the high dessert, often getting there by horseback, is where I find the inspirations for my images. There have been contests won, awards received and published images. I am grateful and humbled. But I am in constant pursuit of the next great moment - keeping it real and telling the story, for myself and my clients, preserving memories one image at a time.
