I specialize in films and stills for kindred spirits that have an insatiable passion for the wild. I love getting into the technicals details of why and how equipment works so I can use it without thinking in the field. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t doing something outdoors. Growing up on the Pacific Coast of Central America was totally rad with volcanoes, black sand beaches, and great surf! I started surfing at twelve and migrated to photography, influenced by my best friend’s dad who had a dark room in which he developed glossy surf prints.
My work has been recognized (see Awards and Recognitions section below) by the Fine Art Photography Awards, the International Photography Awards, Landscape Photography Magazine as well as commented on by various other organizations, including the United Nation's Biodiversity Initiative, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council, the Audubon Society, the American Bald Eagle Foundation, DIY Photography™, Photography Life™, and the Alaska Wilderness League. My recent photograph of the skin patterns of an Iguana won the top award in the Art Wolfe Photography as Art Competition. I am the founder of @EarthAperture and a frequent contributor to magazines, trade journals, and industry blogs.
My favorite work involves films and stills that can be used for grass root causes that seek to keep things wild. I am happiest with family and friends as long as we are outdoors. My contact details are below.
Awards and Recognitions
Having read and followed the work of Art Wolfe for several years, I am grateful and honored to have won his Photography as Art Competition with the above composition. The competition emphasized Photography as Art, specifically patterns. The contest is part of a series that explores the various elements of design which are essential to making compelling photographic compositions. It features the intricate, mosaic-like skin of an Iguana in its breeding colors. The diverse textures and unusual shapes highlight the often overlooked art found in the natural world.
