I was fortunate to witness a fantastic display of auroras over Grizzly Lake in the Tombstone Range, Yukon, in September! See all the photos from our trek here: http://www.mountainphotography.com/gallery/tombstone-mountains-yukon/

Photos from the first week of our road trip, heading through the Great Basin of western Utah and Nevada:

Welcome to Norway!

Our first day in the Lofoten Islands. This was taken at dawn on Tuesday morning. I made my way down alone to the edge of the fjord for this composition, after wading through fresh snow that was at times up to my waist. And the hike back up the steep hill with my heavy backpack was even more interesting. Glad nobody saw me do this!

The aspens were absolutely glorious a couple days ago up on Kebler Pass! I think it took me about 4 hours to walk a couple miles; I just had to stop about every 50 feet to take it all in (and take photos too!). Super happy to be back home in Crested Butte, Colorado now after our big summer road trip. See more photos on my blog!

Just got back from a week of heli drops in Haines, Alaska. It was a pinnacle in my 20+ years of snowboarding, and a few days later, it all seems like an unreal dream. See lots more photos here: http://www.mountainphotography.com/gallery/haines-alaska-heli/

Story
Tagline
Mountain photographer in Ouray, Colorado
Introduction

I live in Ouray, Colorado, in the heart of the mighty San Juan Mountains. Though my passion for the mountains long preceded my passion for photography, I have found that photography often provides the motivation to explore places I might not usually hike to, in weather I might not usually prefer to hike in, at times of day that I might usually rather be sleeping. The result is that my photography takes me to spectacular scenes I might not witness otherwise, and I hope to share these scenes with others through my photos and prints.

I first started playing with cameras while I was in college at the University of Colorado in Boulder, where I graduated with a BA in Fine Arts Printmaking (mostly intaglio, but also lithography, woodcuts, and screenprinting).

I love traveling and seeing new places, especially in the mountains! I make most of my photographs in remote wilderness areas, usually backpacking for many miles and oftentimes bushwhacking through the woods to explore places where no trails exist. I am also an avid backcountry snowboarder/splitboarder.

The earth is a big place with lots of variety, but in my opinion it doesn't get much better than relaxing next to an alpine lake, surrounded by towering mountains and wide views. One goal of my photography is to record and communicate some of those moments of paradise in nature. Also more generally, I want to show the purity, grandeur and unique character of mountains and perhaps inspire people to appreciate and respect the remaining wilderness for themselves.

Please visit my blog to read more about my latest adventures.You can also read more about me and my photography in the following published interviews: Photo Bards, Cowboys & Indians, and ELFPA.
