I am a full time photographer based out of Southern California 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 Sierra Mountains of California. When not leading tours or working on assignments, you can find me exploring some well known and many lesser known areas of the Colorado Plateau and the Mojave Desert regions.
