Artist's Statement

Iíve always been inspired by the beauty of nature. My love for the great outdoors goes back to my childhood, growing up in rural Missouri. Nature has always been a special part of my life.

Great landscape photography comes not only from a good understanding of photographic technique and exposure, but also from a profound appreciation of the natural world. Truly compelling landscape photographs go beyond the visual elements, and at times, seem to have a life of their own. It is my goal to strive for that level of excellence in my photographic endeavors.

It is my hope that through photography I can inspire others to get out and explore these beautiful places, because, in the end, no photograph can replace the experience of actually being there!
