Whether it’s photography, digital media, painting or even cooking, I’ve always enjoyed creative outlets. Perhaps photography and digital media are my favorite ways to share my perspectives and stories. I’m also an avid traveler with a deep affinity for the outdoors and our amazing public lands, so you’ll find my subjects lean heavily towards landscapes from my adventures to the American West and my beautiful home state of Minnesota.
Within this site are some of my favorite photos arranged in a variety of galleries. Some of these galleries are the result of considerable thought and effort to produce professional-like content. Others are purely a fun photographic record of a vacation or family event.
I’m certainly no pro, but I am continually striving to learn and improve on my craft. I used to shoot Canon, but switched to Lumix in 2018. I mostly shoot Micro Four-Thirds with a Lumix G85 to keep the size and weight of my kit down, as well as, the breadth of quality glass at relatively reasonable prices. More recently I’ve added a full-frame Lumix S5 matched with a 24-105mm f4 macro lens, which produces some of the more recent images on this site. And occasionally I still use my old Canon 20d with a decent nice 28-135mm, which does surprisingly well considering its vintage.
And as most photographers will tell you, the best camera is the one you have, so you’ll find a handful of shots on this site that were taken on an iPhone or a Canon point-and-shoot. Lightroom does wonders in correcting for mistakes and even poor glass, and ultimately composition is what matters most (in my opinion anyway).
I hope you enjoy. I know I have.
