The Grand Views of the Natural Landscape in Which We Live
I have always been attracted to the "Grand Views" of the American Southwest. It is here that I feel most deeply rooted to the Earth, and often ponder our place in what has been created. It is challenging as well as humbling to attempt to capture the emotion I feel when out in our (almost) wild lands and put it into perspective.
I currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah, which puts me within a 5 hours drive to at least 10 National Parks and Recreation Areas as well as 17 National Monuments including Grand Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Natural Bridges, Hovenweep, Glenn Canyon, Chaco Canyon, and Grand Staircase-Escalante to name a few. This offers me plentiful resources to hunt for the light, shapes, and designs I seek.
I photograph in color, b&w, as well as use an infrared converted camera that captures the infrared wavelengths that our eyes cannot see. More information about this in my blog.
