Thank You for Visiting My Site.

Thank you for visiting my site. I am a Bellingham, WA, based photojournalist and workshop instructor. I contribute and am a photographer for Getty Images, a freelance photographer for local publications such as The Bellingham Herald. and the The Bellingham Business Journal. Click here to view my images from My work for the Bellingham Herald., the sports photographer for the Northwest Conference Athletics covering Meridian High School winter, spring, and summer sports. View the sports galleries here: Meridian High School Sports Photography.

I feel confident I can capture those story telling images you need. My experience is in breaking news, photo essays, portraiture, travel and sports, and covering those assignments no one else will. This has taught me how to capture moments, think on my feet, be flexible, and flow with the changes.

I've covered everything possible including sports assignments from PeeWee football to the Tennessee Titans Super Bowl run, general news from city elections to the 2008 Democratic National Convention, weather assignments covering everything from snow features to a tornado to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina.

There is no assignment too big nor too small.

Not only do I have a love for photography, but I am also an avid outdoorsman. Camping, hiking, and backpacking are some of my favorite things. During winter, my feet are on my board and I'm sliding down the mountain, tackling the more challenging terrain.

After years of roaming the country working for various news organizations, I now live in the Pacific Northwest north of Seattle in the town of Bellingham, Wash., with my wife Heidi
