Website is up and running!

Woo! After much work and reverse-engineering, I finally got my website developed and uploaded. Everything is nearly complete, but I’m planning on implementing a shopping cart in the near future to make purchasing prints a more streamlined process.

Rock and Leaf Textures

Taken in the Sierra Tuolumne River Canyon near Tuolumne, California on February 10th, 2008 Wanting to shoot some river scenes, I drove out to the scenic Tuolumne River in Northern California. After a fair bit of hiking around, I was feeling a little befuddled by the utter lack of the grand river vistas I was […]

Weathered Tree at Sunset

Taken in the Sierra Nevada Foothills near Knight’s Ferry, California on February 9th, 2008 On my way to visit family in Northern California, I was brought to a halt by a two-mile-long backed-up line of cars. Not knowing when traffic would clear and seeing potential for a nice sunset that evening, I decided to go […]

Lambing Season

Taken in the Rees river valley outside of Glenorchy, New Zealand, on October 22nd, 2007 Driving through New Zealand during their spring, my girlfriend and I saw no shortage of newborn baby lambs frolicking in the sunshine. When we stopped alongside the road so my girlfriend could snap photos of a couple of sheep, I […]

Nugget Point

Taken at Nugget Point in the Catlins, New Zealand, on October 16th, 2007 It almost didn’t sound worth visiting. The guidebook described Nugget Point something like “a few large rocks in the water, and nearby there’s a spot where you have a small chance of seeing some wildlife.” Hardly enticing, I thought, and was ready […]

Clear Waters and Golden Sands

Clear Waters and Golden Sands

The Story Behind This Photograph:

Taken in Bark Bay, Abel Tasman National Park, New Zealand on October 2nd, 2007.

Beaches in Abel Tasman are, simply, what beaches should be: covered in golden sands and washed by incredibly clear turquoise waters. I wanted to represent this ideal beach in this photo by giving equal weight to the sand and the water, both of which show resplendently pure colors under a deep blue sky.

Kearsarge Pinnacles, Kings Canyon

Taken at the Kearsarge Pinnacles, Kings Canyon National Park, California, on September 16th, 2007 I had hoped for some Alpenglow or lovely sunrise colors when I woke up to shoot photos in the Kearsarge basin. But rather than finding either of those, I saw a placidly-still lake reflecting the Pinnacles and creating wonderful geometries of […]

Marsh Lake, Little Lakes Valley

Taken at Marsh Lake in the Little Lakes Valley, Eastern Sierra Nevada, California on August 25th, 2007 One of my favorite places in the Sierra is the Little Lakes Valley. I’m not sure there’s another place you can go that gives you such a high reward-to-effort ratio. The trailhead is at 10,500 feet, and by […]
