I've been photographing all-embracing scenes of North America for decades.
As an internationally published solo fine art photographer born in San Francisco, California, I specialize in creating beautiful oversized landscape and nature prints of North America. My passion is exploring and photographing parks, public lands, and other wonderful places of interest in my van with my two small dogs.
I fell in love with outdoor and wilderness photography while backpacking in Yosemite and working with my father in his "darkroom" as a young child. I completed numerous photography and art classes in college at San Jose State University located in the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
My lifelong passion for wandering through nature, love for outdoor adventure, and interest in landscape photography drives me to create attractive and deep visions of our natural environment that I am delighted to share with others. My style is colorful, lively, yet comforting. I am inspired by a strong bond I have with our magical world and my non-stop desire to explore the USA and Canada.
Many of my photographs have been published in National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, Landscape Photography Magazine, Digital Photo Pro Magazine, Sunset Magazine, California State Parks Foundation, Yosemite Journal, and others. My work has also been featured and widely used in ads for television, books, puzzles, brochures, and calendars.
I frequently work with interior designers and art consultants for corporate projects. My work enhances the walls of many interiors including homes, golf courses, restaurants, business office spaces, apartments, hospitals, and more.
