Biographical Information

My career in photography shifted gears abruptly when I leapt from my job as the one-man photo staff at a newspaper in a small farming community to shooting assignments for National Geographic Magazine. During the years that followed I have traveled extensively for magazine editorial, corporate/industrial and agricultural clients.

In 20 years of working as a contract photographer to the National Geographic Society I have covered a broad range of subjects. Many of my photo projects have focused on the rural lifestyles of people who make their living from the land. Family farms and ranches have a critical connection with our country’s history and economy. I approach these subjects with the understanding that there is a dignity and pride that comes from hard work, and simple but strong family bonds to the land.

The work, and the people I meet is the best reward, but recognition is nice, too. Early in my career the editors of American Photographer Magazine selected me for the “Best New Face in Magazine Photojournalism” award in their annual new talent competition. Two of my National Geographic magazine stories; one about the “Palouse” farming Region, and my year long exploration of “Sagebrush Country” in America’s great basin won top honors in the annual Pictures of the Year International competition.

I bring a talent for making people comfortable with the camera, and a photojournalist's perspective to tell stories with a dynamic use of color and design. I have extensive experience in aerial photography and strong location lighting skills. I work in film as well as digital media.

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, my wife and I live in Bellingham, WA, conveniently located between Vancouver, B.C., and Seattle. My passions in life are my family, photography, sailing, skiing and Labrador retrievers.
