Introduction

~About Me~

I was born and raised in the Northwest and my passion for photography began with my interest in capturing waterfalls in the Columbia Gorge about 10 years ago. I have always enjoyed hiking in the outdoors and find solace in the beauty of nature. My original inspiration came from Galen Rowell and Ansel Adams. My curiosity was excelled with the digital era and my purchase of a Nikon Coolpix 990 and even further when DSLR’s became more affordable with the introduction of the Canon 10D.


These last four years have been exciting, as my hobby has evolved into a part time profession. I love that my images are snap shots of time of my experience and adventures to be shared with other people. I am happy to have expanded my business outside of prints to include sharing my enthusiasm for photography through workshops and classes. 


Feel free to contact me with questions or welcomed feedback.  


~Image Processing~

I Process all my images using Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe CS5. My images are not HDR, but at times I do blend multiple images using layers in Photoshop to preserve highlight and shadow detail. My goal is to capture the image the best I can “in-camera” using various filters to minimize my post processing, but some scenes extreme dynamic range wont allow this to happen. I typically make small adjustments on layers and utilize Nik Filters + custom actions to speed the processing of my images. But some scenes extreme dynamic range wont allow this to happen.

~Winter Rush~

Here is a down low chilly look at the gorgeous Latourell Falls in the Columbia River Gorge. The whole area is so beautiful with its winter coat! It was snowing very hard and with the strong spray this falls puts out, it was a challenging image!

~Upper Oneonta~

"Either you run the day or the day runs you." -Jim Rohn

We got out to do a little frigid hiking in the gorge yesterday. The gorge was packed, so we made our way down to this little gem and avoided the crowds. Although I was hoping for some thick fog to mask the dormant winter foliage, its still a beautiful spot. I was really drawn to the little ripple in the foreground.

Happy Sunday everyone!

~Rainbow Falls~

While I missed the frozen falls in PNW, I did still visit a few water falls on The Big Island. Rainbow Falls is a beautiful 80 foot falls, I wish I would of had more cloud cover to grab some better comps, but you can't always get what you want  Happy Sunday everyone!

Cool.  I have my gimbal but need to extend my landing gear since the gimbla extends beyond the stock gear.
