Hi and welcome to my "About Me" page!
This is where things are all about ME! Not you. Not this time. Every other time it is about you! So here is the deal, I take pictures. Lots of pictures. Lots of beautiful pictures and I like to share them with everyone I see. Not because I am full of myself but to inspire people to get in touch with their adventurous side and experience something new. Life is about two things: Relationships and Experiences. I have been lucky enough to have a good mix of both and capture memories of them along the way. When talking about adventure and travel, too many people go through life saying, “When I retire...” I hope those people will still be capable of doing the things they want upon retirement but in my case I am taking the extra precaution and getting things done now.
Every day is an adventure. While here in my new home town of Jackson, Wyoming or taking long trips in and out of the US, there is never a dull moment. Every year I spend some time in Nicaragua because I have made many friends there and enjoy seeing them. The language barrier is becoming less of an issue as my Spanish is improving. Playing charades to tell the family's I am going to take a cold bucket shower, go to town, or that I want to go cut down banana trees with them is becoming less of an ordeal. Every year I also spend some time road-tripping in the United States. We have a lot of amazing things to see here in our country that not a lot of people consider when they think about going on vacation. Through my photography I hope people get motivated to get out and see our beautiful Nation!
Here in Jackson it seems like everyone has at least two jobs. Both of mine involve a camera in hand and luckily I only need one summer and one winter job. If you make it to the Jackson Hole and schedule a Grand Teton National Park or Yellowstone safari you might have me as a guide if you book with Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris! I am lucky because I get to drive and walk around these amazing parks teaching about the flora and fauna, as well as teach people how to capture the essence with photography. I also enjoy it because I get to meet a lot of interesting people and hear their stories.
In the winter I am a portrait photographer. When people are on vacation and want to savor the memories- I am the man for the job. I create a fun, energetic, and professional shoot which many people tell me is a memory in itself. I spend less than an hour total with the people and year after year they remember having me take their photos, even from different resorts! Which always makes me feel good. When I am doing these shoots I often get told I look and sound like Seth Rogen, a comedian actor. I typically hear it at least once a week.
I hope I get to meet you some day and hear your story. Hopefully my images will inspire you to get out and see the world and try your hand at capturing the special moments in time!
