There's so much amazing out there

Expansive, colorful, detailed scenery is my obsession. I love the adventure of finding bold blue skies, watching dynamic clouds slowly build and release their form, hearing and feeling powerful water etch a path around unyielding towering rock that climbs above a forest of uncountable trees.  At night, I can spend hours peering out into our galaxy and universe. My absolute passion is finding and photographing these scenes.

I’m a Pacific Northwest native who now calls Seattle my home after moving between dozens of cities up and down the West Coast as a kid. I spent a decade in college studying math and science, but towards the end became enamored with photography and made it my full time (plus) career. Almost 15 years later, after covering around 400 weddings, I transitioned into art photography as well as commercial interior photography. I’ve also taken up orchid growing and am detailing my terrarium build progress on this site in the Journal section.

The Panoramic Method

I spent a significant percentage of my life pursuing science and engineering before finding photography as life path. I am drawn to the technical aspects of photography and immediately embraced panoramic stitch photography where many images are combined into massive composite photograph. The scenes I’m able to capture with this technique are more expansive than normal and full of immense detail far exceeding the most cutting-edge cameras available on the market. If a photograph is worth one thousand words, a panoramic image is a novel.

The wall print

The panoramic stitch technique lets me print at very large scales so that you can view the image close to see scenes within the scene but also take several steps back to see the full picture. At this scale, the prints become windows into nature: I want you to feel like you are there and feeling what I experienced.

All of the photography in my gallery is printed through two reputable companies, Acrylicpress and Whitewall. 

  • Acrylicpress is a world-leader in acrylic printing. The finished product a print on professional paper sandwiched between 1/8” premium acrylic glass on the front and a 3-layer structural piece behind. It’s easy to mount the print to the wall using the included wall cleat which gives the piece a 1/2” float off the wall.

  • Whitewall - used for extreme printing size installations as well as international printing and shipping.

The Acrylic Block

We spend a ton of time at desks. You can now easily add a nature scene and pop of color with my new Acrylic Blocks. These are 1" thick of premium acrylic that have to be seen to understand how they come to life.
