I am a native Oregonian and have lived here my entire life. At an early age I began an interest in photography. I traveled extensively around the world capturing the beauty overseas, but found my home state has such incredible beauty that I am staying closer to home and exploring old and new places. I have discovered that capturing near perfect images is mostly a matter of being at the right place at the right time. It helps to plan ahead to be at that right place during the golden hours just before sunrise and sunset to catch that soft light.
I continue to learn and be challenged in my photographic work. I am forever thankful to share my work and see the joy in other people’s eyes when they share stories with me after purchasing one of my images. Sharing and appreciation of art can’t get any better.
