NATURE, UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL

I started taking photographs years ago to preserve my memories from backpacking trips throughout the American West. Over time, I have often focused in on specific details, stripped down to their essentials, as a way to more deeply appreciate the natural world.

I also contribute as a photographer, writer, and trainer to local grassroots organizations in the area where I live in Talent, Oregon.

My photographs appear in each edition of the free emailed bulletin, World Wide Work, which alerts readers to new films, books, and music you may have missed.
