Though I was born and raised under the bright Californian sun, the last decade of my life has often seen me traveling to the wilds of northern Europe, where I’m inspired by the mixture of landscape, weather, history, and culture. In early 2016, after over 20 visits in the previous 15 years, I was finally able to move to the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway. Now with an endless array of mountains now just outside my doorstep and beyond, I’ll be kept busy exploring this arctic paradise.
Beyond photography, writing about the places I visit has taken a greater role in my life, with 3 guidebooks to Norway’s Lofoten Islands and several magazine articles. Though I never thought I would be a writer, it seems to be a complimentary pursuit alongside my long term photographic projects.
As I often return to my favorite places over many years and across the seasons, some locations have almost become more familiar to me than my own home. My interest in deeply exploring these areas has led to the natural progression that I offer photography tours and workshops to help others discover the landscapes which have drawn me back so many times.
My photos and articles have been published throughout the world in magazines, catalogs, calendars, newspapers, travel guides, brochures, websites, etc., including National Geographic Traveler, Sunset Magazine, Lonely Planet Traveller, Men’s Journal, BBC Country File, GEO Saison, British Airways High Life, Xjourney, and more.
