I began my career as a corporate designer and art director for ten years at Warner Bros Music and HBO. I traveled with my camera during my corporate vacation time, photographing tropical forest ecology for NGOs. I went solo in 1992.
Since then, I've been creating images, illustrations and assemblages for corporate clients, institutions, collectors and public installations.
In 2001 I began teaching the exploration of creativity with others. I now mentor emerging photographers and have led workshops at Maine Media Workshops, Santa Fe Workshops, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Lepp Digital Institute, Vancouver Photo Workshops, and at sea for UnCruise.
I also lead The Art of Travel and Street Photography workshops in Seattle, Cuba, India, Sri Lanka, Amsterdam, Paris, Alaska, Hawaii and Mexico.
To share my ideas, I've published articles in AfterCapture, Nikon World, Outside, Geo, Islands, Conde Nast Traveller, LA Times, NY Times, Audubon, Outdoor Photographer, Digital Photo Pro, Rangefinder, FUJILove, in books and have guest hosted the podcast Hit The Streets.
I now shoot exclusively with Fujifilm X cameras and have been selected as a member of the Fujifilm X CREATOR team.
When not immersed in my Seattle home studio lined with collected objects and vintage technology, I travel, sea kayak, explore nature with my partner Melynda, and prowl any place abandoned, unlocked and inviting.
I enjoy meeting new friends, so I invite you to get in touch.
