Ever wonder what the landscape looks like after dark? These images use the camera to help the viewer see the unseen.

I am a landscape and travel photographer based out of Flagstaff, Arizona. I've been making images since my father owned a local camera store in the 80's. Although my photographs are from far and wide, my heart lies in the Southwest's Colorado Plateau.
From wide sweeping vistas to intimate landscapes, I attempt to convey the feeling of awe and inspiration I felt while making these images.
Black and White images have the ability to use texture and contrast to distill the essence of a scene. Here shape and form take front seat over color to tell a different story.
From ancient ruins to urban decay these images tell the story of a by-gone age.
These images are scenic in nature, but possess that extra human element.
