I have been an avid photographer for a good portion of my life. In 1997 I turned my passion for photography into a full-time profession, specializing in nature and travel photography. With an emphasis toward health care and Evidence Based Design, I provide restorative images of nature, with calming palettes of blues and greens for hospital settings and medical facilities throughout the west and southwest. My fine-art prints are also displayed in many corporate and private collections. My images are marketed by leading stock agencies and are regularly reproduced in a variety of media. Teaching photography is an enjoyable and important aspect to my photo business. I teach workshops, lead photographic tours, and give individual tutoring sessions. I have especially enjoyed leading boat-based photographic tours in S.E. Alaska, the Inside Passage and the San Juan Islands. Please visit my website for details and schedule. I live in Washington State in the tiny community of Seabeck on the shore of Hood Canal.
