"More than just landscapes, but rather images that allows the viewer to imagine being in those places as an intrinsic part of that beauty as much as the sky and mountains; rivers and lakes, trees and flowers."

Thank you for visiting my website. Since retiring, I have started a photography business, Bootprint Photography, which has been an outlet for me to re-cultivate my love and passion for extended backpacking, day hiking, poetry, and landscape photography with a more full time effort. I am also currently a featured artist with the Artist's Gallery Cooperative in Olympia, WA and post my photographs at the website 500PX (

I am motivated by what the wilderness reveals and the challenge of capturing that genius of beauty that unfolds before me and the personal excitement of being there -- of being a part of the experience. It is my hope that anyone who views my work will feel the same wonder that I do -- that my photographs awaken and guide your mountain spirit and sense of discovery. I hope that these images reflect the symmetry of wilderness as well as being a reflection of people enjoying their place and experiences along the trail.

With regard to my 500PX website/portfolio --(, the "about button" provides information with regard to the location and metadata of each photograph from each "category" as well as a number I have assigned it in case there are additional questions about a particular photograph. I also have a website through Fine Art America, and finished work can be purchased through that site as well --
