I do this for fun! I mostly do landscape, nature, travel, and astrophotography, but an occasional portrait here or there.
I enjoy taking pictures of places I visit because it allows me to bring that place home with me as I remember it, and to share it with others. I always strive to capture and edit my pictures in a way that's both true to life and reflects on how I felt and experienced the place. There's a balance that has to go into every shot to achieve this, and I enjoy finding it.
I've been taking pictures on hikes and trips and such for most of my life, but only recently have I decided to be a bit more serious and try to elevate what I'm doing. I started out with a modest goal of just having better pictures for our trips, but these days I make a point to take some pictures for the sake of taking pictures.
Most of my shots are from the Seattle area and surrounding mountains, but plenty are from other places near and far. I like pairing photography with hiking, as I think it adds something to both hobbies.
Prints are available for most photos, either through my 500px store or by contacting me directly. Feel free to send me an email if you have questions or advice.
Otherwise, all of my images are copyrighted, and you'll need my explicit permission to use them other than for personal use. For commercial use, 500px provides a fine way to license my photos that's inexpensive and easy. Contact me if you have questions.
