I am a hobbyist landscape photographer based in Nampa, Idaho. I love to explore the abundant and diverse natural landscapes of Idaho. With a bit of luck, I even capture a photograph or two along the way.
I became involved with photography in the same manner as many other people. I simply wanted to capture the sights and moments of various backpacking and road trip outings. Over time, my passion for photography grew and continues to grow as I learn more about it on every photographic journey.
In recent years I have begun to draw a great deal of inspiration from the art of the Romantic Era. In particular, the Luminist Movement. You will find that I try to mimic the bold color, fantastical light and grand sweeping landscapes that so moved the artists of the early nineteenth century. I strive to convey more than the documentarian view of a location. I hope to share the sense of awe and emotions I felt when the image was captured.
I am not a prolific photographer. I only get out once every couple of weeks for a hike or drive and many times I do not capture an image I am happy with. That being said, the images that I do have, I am fairly proud of.
