Photographer/Writer/Publisher based in the Greater Yellowstone Region
When I was a wander lusting young man I would often find myself in beautiful places, so I bought a camera so I could document my wanderlust.1n 1987 I packed up my Toyo 4X5 view camera, Pentex 6X7 medium format camera, and my 35-millimeter cameras and headed to Jackson Hole Wyoming, one of the best places on earth to be an outdoor photographer. Jackson Hole abuts Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park an embarrassment of riches for wildlife, lifestyle and landscape photography.
Jackson Hole is full of active lifestyle types, fly-fishing, hunting, whitewater sports, horseback riding, etc. I became a freelance guide as well, fly-fishing, snowmobile, park tour guiding, and horseback wrangling my way to beautiful pictures all over the area and throughout the spectrum of activities in the area.
My freelance photography bifurcated to include graphic design work, which opened the door to web publishing requiring that I learned to write. I publish The Greater Yellowstone Resource Guide.
My photography, wildlife video and feature stories have been published by Passion Planet, National Geographic, Audubon, Outside Magazine, Snow Country, Outdoor life, Esquire Sports, New York Dailey News, West Coast Board Sailor, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, Warren Miller Productions, U.S.A. Today, San Francisco Magazine, Musher Magazine, Mother Jones, Yes Magazine, Mule Deer Foundation Magazine, Muley Crazy, International Wolf Magazine, a Toyota campaign, Fly-fisherman, Idaho Magazine, Western Byways, Mushing Magazine, Beet (Belgian fishing magazine), Wyoming Lifestyle and Fit For Fun (German sports Magazine). As a stock photographer his photographs have been published all over the world.
Today I shoot exclusively with DSLR’s. My Canon EOS D5 Mark lll, its 22-megapixel censor can produce tiff files of over 60 megabytes, a size that can reproduce very large prints, or provide the opportunity for cropping tight and still having plenty of resolution to work with. I also shoot with a and EOS 7D, the 7D’s smaller image sensor I find useful for in frame cropping video when wildlife subjects are way off in the distance. DSLR video has become a part of my workflow and I now am building a video clip library.
I lead photography tours and workshops in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks as well as other destinations I love like Zion, Arches, Canyonlands, Glacier and Yosemite National Parks. The Canadian Rockies of Banff, Yoho and Jasper National Parks are in the works. The name of my photography workshop is The Hole Picture Safaris
Education: Independent study of photography and digital design:
Photography has more pay offs than monetary. Long before finding commercial success I found photography drove me to search out pretty places or to scrupulously dissect my surroundings to find magical light. This quest drew me to seek out beautiful things even in adverse conditions. Wherever we go with our photographer’s eye we are looking for a beautiful rectangle we can isolate out of the chaos of life, when you are always seeking beauty, you will find more than your share ~ that is rich!
