Imagery from places I am passionate about preserving; It has been an honor to be able to share pictures and stories from some of the most spectacular places left on earth. I have put my body and soul on the line to raise awareness and share the spectacular from the farthest flung wilderness areas. This is the front lines of conservation photography where massive industrial scale projects threaten irreplaceable gems. Thanks to all who have supported my efforts.
Bristol Bay-Pebble Mine
Smith River, Montana
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
North America’s most remote Wilderness; the mighty Brooks Ranges and the Arctic plain feature massive herds of caribou, runs of arctic Char, Grizzly bear, and huge flocks of migratory birds. With the support of Patagonia and supporters I headed to this imperiled region to bring back images in support of preserving this unparalleled region. A true throwback to the ice age, a place of solitude worth preserving forever. Any trip to the North Slope is a serious undertaking, wild and remote, I spent a month packrafting from the headwaters to the Arctic Ocean.
The leading community-run non-profit ski area in the country. Bridger Bowl has forsaken the real estate model of ski resort development and puts the environment, skiing, affordability, accessibility for all, and fun before all else.
Where this takes me from here is up to all of you. I dream of someday making it back to Bristol Bay; the Tongass is a place that deserves two summers of my efforts; the northwest is where I grew up and certain stocks of the iconic wild steelhead are on their way to extinction; the planet’s largest golden trout residing high in the Wind River range of Wyoming (a sufferfest of epic proportions); maybe even a trip to Bolivia to photograph ancient ruins of baffling origins. My dreams and heart have always been much larger than my bank account and I thanks everyone who has helped my down this path.
