Everything has a beginning...

Welcome to the blog roll portion of my new website.  This will serve as a platform for sharing content regarding photography techniques, educational information, travel stories, and much more.  I look forward to breaking out and sharing more than just my images in the very near future. 

I figured more than just a quick 'hello' was in order for this introductory post, so I have included my first portfolio image, 'King of the Valley.' Special moments like this were and always will be critical in the progression of this art in my life.  Over the past few years I often find myself reflecting on my earlier work when I'm met with challenges or creative roadblocks. I have found that when I am having struggles with creativity, I remind myself of why I picked up a camera in the first place.  The love of the outdoors and nature took me down the path I walk today and enjoying those things are at the heart of why I continue to explore, photograph and teach.
