The latest and greatest shots I've come across. Enjoy!



Lately production hasn't necessarily been good on my end when it comes to new photographs. It seems that being a papa, summiting mountains, new jobs for the wife and I, and the fact that my editing hasn't met my own extreme standards as of the late means no pics. So by forcing myself to carve out a little time in the evenings here and there, over the course of literally four to five weeks, I've finally been able to get a photo completed. I've also spent some time trying to redevelop my post edit work over the past few months. I hope it continues to head in a direction that I can finally put what's in my mind onto paper. Then frame it, hang it, and sit back and enjoy it.

If you find yourself saying, "I've seen this shot before" it's true. This is most definitely a re-edit, but one that I felt I didn't even come close to doing justice the first go around. In such a beautiful part of the country, to fall so short of what I felt, I had to spend the time necessary to do my best.

The area in which I shot this is nothing short of unbelievable. Multiple mountains that are individually set apart from others, each having their own character. A plethora of streams and creeks that dissect the valley. Huge sweeping meadows carpeted with lush alpine wildflowers. All of it was too good to be true. If you ever find yourself looking to get away to some beautiful scenery, I couldn't recommend Glacier National Park more.

As of now however, I've got some sick kids waking up from a nap to take care of. Until next time.


The fella was hanging out with his little buddy, soaking up the last few rays of sunshine before the end of the day.

Always nice to capture fleeting moments before they pass. I literally saw this about five minutes before the sun went behind the hills.

Remember, Christmas is just around the corner. You do have loved ones that would love one of these babies. You could even buy it for yourself (I won't judge). Don't be shy, I can answer any questions you might have about printing!

Middle Lane

Had to get low for this shot down this dry creek bed. Just a few wildflowers left during the few days I was here. Luckily they made a lovely few rows paralleling the creek bed.

Hope you enjoy! Prints are available for Christmas presents. Don't forget!

Big Sandy
After having spent a couple days amongst the Cirque of the Towers, Ryan and I decided to head back out and spend the last evening at Big Sandy Lake. After setting up our camp, we began to roam around in search of some compositions. I had seen a marshy areas with lovely tall grasses and a slowly moving, meandering creek exiting into the lake. There were some lovely compositions around the area, but for mid-day, this one is my favorite.

I hope you enjoy!
Just kept shooting into the night and soaking up my surroundings. It was such a wonderful evening. No complaints at all, other than the soft glass I received from Samyang. So, this one won't make it to the big leagues. Just not sharp enough.

Hope you enjoy otherwise!
