Michigan Landscape Photographer


It all started with light

I was recently honored with the request to give a talk on photography. It was an amazing opportunity that required me to look at my own work and process as a photographer.

I learned so much about myself and fell in love with photography all over again. I revisited the key points in my past that helped me develop into the photographer I am today.

The Best of 2016

As the year wraps up, I've been doing a lot of reflection on my artwork. Did I met the goals I set for myself? Did I learn and grow? What did I do that I liked? What did I do that I didn't? 

After a lot of thought, I've picked my ten favorite photographs that best describe my growth for the year. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Favorite Shots of Last Autumn

This was our first Autumn were we planned Fall Color Tours. We spent five days during the peak color in the U.P and a week in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. In addition to our travels, we also visited Muskegon. Here are some of our favorite shots from our tours.

My Top 10 Michigan Waterfalls

We have not yet seen all 272 recorded waterfalls in Michigan but we have seen more than most. We never turn down an opportunity to trudge in a river, scale gorge walls or bushwhack through nature to access some of the most wild waterfalls in the state. Waterfalls are, without a doubt, my favorite subject to photograph. And the more wild the better.

An Icy Trip to Lake Michigan

There is something other-worldly like about visiting one of Michigan's great lakes in the winter time. The ice in particular creates these beautiful formations. Wind swept, weather eroded and fractured iced. Mountains line the beaches, and chunks float in the water, growing and shrinking as they collide with other sheets of ice. It's a spectacular view.
