Oaxaca Color

I have been very fortunate to have lived and worked in some of the most spectacular places in the country. From the depths of Death Valley to the foothills of Denali, my career with the National Park Service has been a door to the world of photography.


Starting out with scientific photo documentation in the field over 20 years ago, I have expanded the scope of my expression to include fine art and “street” photography; Polaroid image transfer, historic alternative processes; and I am currently exploring high-resolution digital scanning and archival printing.


In the late 1800s, it was the work of photographers and artists that convinced the US Congress to establish Yellowstone as the world’s first national park, which eventually led to the establishment of the National Park Service in 1916. Photographic images have an incredible power to capture our hearts and influence our attitudes and actions. Through my work I hope to follow in the footsteps of these early artists and continue to influence the viewer towards a sense of wonder and appreciation.
