I am a photographer and writer based in Anchorage, Alaska. 2016 marked my 25th year as a professional photographer.  I am probably best known for my long-term, Alaska photography projects. I also work with a variety of editorial clients, both as a photographer and writer, with an emphasis on natural history and environmental assignments. My fine art prints are in numerous private and public collections in Alaska and North America. I have been teaching classes on photography since 1995 and have been guiding throughout Alaska since 2003.
