Growing up in the foothills between Yosemite and Tahoe, I’ve always been spoiled by the awesomeness of the outdoors. Fresh out of high school and having no clue what I wanted to do, I happened to take a photography class and found not only my passion, but a way to share the beauty of my surroundings with others. Back then, in every river I photographed I imagined how much cooler the image would be if there were someone fishing it. Combining the two, I added a fly rod and a few fishing buddies to my arsenal and decided to move where there was a bit more water to cover. I’m still more of a photographer than a fisherman, since I prefer a killer image to a killer fish. But... I’m still pretty excited with a killer fish.
Recently I’ve been pretty busy traveling and shooting images. This past year has been pretty spectacular! I’ve recently teamed up with Off the Grid Studios where I joined the film team shooting stills for their 2019 TFFFT release of NextGen. I’ve continued work with #keepemwet hosting a successful fundraiser here in Central Oregon. And finally it’s been an honor working with and providing images for some great clients in 2018!
