I am a full time photographer based out of Maryland, although my assignments and workshops take me all over the country and internationally. I have been leading photo tours/workshops and publishing my photography for over 15 years. My particular interest at the time is the deserts of the southwestern United States and the Eastern Appalachians. I lead on average of 12 photography tours a year and am currently working on producing new images of lesser known and off the beaten path locations in the Desert Southwest. I hope you enjoy my images and they inspire you to get outdoors and create a meaningful connection with the natural world.
