I began my love for photography when I enrolled in a 4-H photography project at age 8. I soon graduated from a Canon 35mm film point-and-shoot to a Canon 35mm film SLR camera, and began learning all about apertures and shutter speeds. By high school I was taking friend's senior photos, several family portraits, developing my own black & white film for the school newspaper, teaching sixth graders photography, and working as a part-time assistant for a wedding photographer. It all just kept rolling from there.
I now classify myself as a semi-professional photographer. I love the beauty of nature, and I focus primarily on landscape and wildlife photography. However, like most photographers, I enjoy stretching my creativity by dabbling in other areas!
My wife and I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where the Rocky Mountains provide much more beauty than I have time to capture!

I am frequently asked about what gear I use for my photos. Here's a list of the core equipment that I'm currently using.
