My career has spanned from film to the modern digital age, a time in which we have seen the number of participants in this kind of photographic art expand as rapidly as technology itself has advanced. Perhaps the most compelling thing for me remains the same as ever though, and that is to create, to discover, to fuse my vision with the unknown. Throughout my career I have pushed the boundaries when it comes to finding new locations in the wilderness to make my images and I believe it is that quality that best defines my art. Some of these places remain outside the realms explored even today, while others have become icons of the modern age shot by thousands of professionals around the world. In this age where we see the majority of other professionals and amateurs alike out to replicate others - I take the opposite approach. Before I visit a place I make it a point to reject any preconceived notions of what I will find and seek to do the vast majority of my best work in places which I am seeing myself for the first time. For this reason I would like to call attention to the fact that at the time I made these images, my own vision of the place was all I had to go on. If you have seen these images elsewhere on other's websites or IG pages then now you know, this is very likely where it started.
In this gallery are images I made while visiting a location for the first time, and/or I had never seen any prior images online or elsewhere from that location at the time I photographed it. While "location" is difficult to define, suffice it to say it means more than different conditions, slightly different foregrounds, etc. For me the images that belong in this gallery are from locations where I hadn't seen another photograph for miles, where there were no footprints, no sign of man and no amount of Googling which could find a like image at the time they were taken. See anything you recognize? Probably. Photographers don't have to say when they cover someone else's song. There's nothing wrong with that and there is no copyrighting nature! But from my point of view, it's more fun to be the original.
