Small studio in Murray, UT.
Currently a scientist by profession.
Avid hiker and backpacker.
Lover of opera and classical music (I miss my French horn).
Interests
I've been a avid hiker, backpacker, and landscape photographer for more decades than I'd care to admit.  The past few years I have joyously ventured into the realm of figure photography, and thus began my attempt to merge the human form, its grace, beauty, and power, with those concomitant characters in nature.
To make all of this happen, I look for models who are creative; I appreciate their individual vision and and what their collaboration can bring to my art.  I am open to almost anything that results in something truly special.  As most of my work is artistic nudes in natural settings, the models I work with are comfortable textile-free in the great outdoors.
In regards to my portraiture work, I use my skills and vision to bring a new, simple, and less pretentious style to the portraits I create.
Oh, and I like to have fun too, and create images that I look at and say, "I kinda like that."
