NEAR TO MY HOMELAND
My homelands NEAR the Southwest, the Grand Canyon and the epic spaces of the west. This is what I call home and always return to and try to preserve these vast moments of time, light and beauty. I am fortunate to call these places HOME and adventure in them with the outdoor lifestyle I live.
FAR… TO THE MOON AND BACK
I consider anything past the moon to be really far, but really, what is far? I guess it is relative to the here and now. For me, if I have to use my passport that is considered FAR, like the beauty of Nepal, the rawness of Peru, the unique nature Thailand, the vast landscapes of New Zealand and the like. So, enjoy these passport moments before I land on the moon and change my definition of FAR.
ROCK: my life, my passion
I have been rock climbing for 20 years and love it. It is my passion and what guides me through life. The best way to describe rock climbing is focus. This is a fun word for a photographer to say. It puts me in a mindset like no other. Like the bubba in meditation. Climbing is like my meditation. All you can think of is how to stay on the vertical face of a ROCK cliff. Focused. This is my mantra.
WATER is magic
It all started back in 1994 on my first river trip down the Grand Canyon and I was hooked. I need a river and a boat to row; this has always helped me gain knowledge of time and light. The most impressive photographic memories of my life are with water and light dancing in front of my boat. WATER keeps pulling me in and keeps me flowing, learning and memorized by its magic.
