His landscape photography and documentary work has been published in newspapers, magazines and international organizations around the world. His assignments span from the Arctic to South America, and from Europe to SE Asia. But the heart of his work features the people and places of the American Landscape.

The morning air is cold and crisp; frost is on the camp gear and mist hovers over the river – snow is on the way. It is September in Yellowstone and a timeless ritual is playing out along the Madison River Valley. A Bull Elk is gathering his harem; his size is impressive. He carries his 6-point rack with regal bearing. But it is his bugle that capture’s your imagination and makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. It is one of nature’s never-to-be forgotten sounds. Following the fall rutting season in Yellowstone is an unforgettable experience. This art print is available here for sale.

“I stand here for the first time...

And find that my heart has been here all along

The first foggy light of dawn caresses the rocky coast and I thrill to the sweeping vistas...”
