Photography introduces me to beautiful landscapes and cityscapes, allows me to document the same action sports that I love participating in, and helps me connect with the local community through portrait and personal projects. This avocation has built a portfolio of images used by nationally-recognized organizations like Canon, Fox News, and the U.S. Ski & Snowboarding Association while also raising money for charity. Borrowing the words of Imogen Cunningham, my favorite photograph is the one I'm going to take tomorrow.
All of the net proceeds from the sale of my fine art prints, commercial licensing fees, and other photography revenues are donated to local charities that either help to promote the arts or provide artistic services to people in need. This program has raised thousands of dollars for organizations like the Steamboat Arts Council, the Acker Scholarship Program, Steamboat Strings Music Festival, and Help-Portrait. I also donate my photography services to local non-profit organizations and events, many of which are featured in my projects gallery.
