Welcome!  This blog discusses a few of my photographic thoughts, and shows some of my adventures - most recently to Svalbard in the Norwegian High Arctic.

Many of the photos and videos here are just "documentary" images - that is, not intended to be "artistic" but, rather, just to share an experience.  So you'll see jiggly iPhone video footage and such.  Though I will be writing a few blog entries that discuss more artistic work. 

I hope you enjoy!

Cheers!

Inspired by the Natural World It seems we are all inspired to capture and preserve the way we feel when visiting beautiful places in the natural world. Those visits clear our hearts and minds, and encourage us to think about things larger than ourselves. As I kickoff this site in November of 2013, I hope that my images will remind you of your own...
