Show after show, these prints are what catch the most attention, draw people in for a closer look, then sell the best.
The first print I sold was “The Wrangell’s”. It was a 20”x30” canvas wrap purchased by a young couple just furnishing their first apartment together. I remember their excitement and how they couldn’t wait to get home and hang their new print. It has now sold more copies than any other image I’ve presented.
Yukon Bison in the Snow
Taken in late April of 2013 in the Yukon Territories on our way to Alaska for what would be our first of three summers to make the trip. This image has garnered much attention and continues to sell well in any size we present it in. Looks great framed!
A Bit of the Old and New on the Forest Floor
Sometimes you stumble onto something that was right in front of you all along. Literally, that was the case with this image. I was shooting something in the distance and stumbled over this old log several times. Providing a nice blend of color and time, it has become a favorite of mine and many others who have it hanging on their wall somewhere.
Conifer Colorado Old Cabin
Located southwest of Denver and visible from Hwy 285, this image is frequently recognized for its rock formations and little old cabin. This image is iconic Colorado and the number of prints sold reflect that.
Valdez Boat Harbor 1
This print of the Valdez Boat Harbor when on canvas is often mistaken for a painting. From a distance, it does look more like a painting than a picture. Taken in late April of 2013 after a very heavy snow year in Alaska. There was still so much snow on the surrounding mountains and piled up in Valdez, it felt more like January than late April.
Alaska Railroad Southbound on Riley Creek Bridge
One of many, many pictures taken that September day in Denali National Park. Even in Colorado, the Alaska Railroad is a very recognizable train with its blue and yellow engines and cars. So many of the people I visit with at the art shows we present at, have either been on the ARR while living in or visiting AK, or know someone who has. The hundreds of shots I have from this day will always top the list with me!
Alaska Railroad Northbound on Riley Creek Bridge
This one is an award winner! Submitted for the Alaska Railroad “Catch the Train” Photo Contest, it was voted as a finalist earning a spot in the 2019 Alaska Railroad Calendar.
Bull Elk in River
Sometimes you’re just in the right place at the right time. This one is part of my “Fleeting Moments” series and has been popular among buyers.
Cow Moose with Calves in the River
On this day I was fortunate enough to photograph the Bore Tide in Turnagain Arm, Dall Sheep on the mountainside along the Seward Highway, Beluga Whales and this “Fleeting Moments” shot. What a day!
Lake Dillon Winter Sunrise
This was a very cold morning waiting for the light to present this shot! Lake Dillon is one of the most recognizable sights along the I-70 Corridor in Colorado and shows its beauty in each season.
Mt Meeker and Longs Peak
This shot has quickly become one of my favorites, primarily because this is a view not enjoyed from the front range. We see only one peak from just about everywhere along the front range from Denver to Ft Collins. A real treat for me to catch this shot when the clouds cooperated!
Just above Empire CO
Sometimes you just get lucky! I once read that one of the best things a photographer can do, is to simply get out and take more pictures. That’s what came top mind early on this day when the snow was still falling. I thought I’d get out and just drive somewhere I hadn’t been in awhile to see what was out there to shoot.
Best of the Best
As my photography has netted many great images that mean more to me than can ever be expressed. It has been only recently that I have started putting “it out there” for all to enjoy. There were a few years of calendars and some select prints, however it was the praise received for prints in this this gallery that pushed me to work toward the next level.
Alaska Railroad Award Winner
This shot taken mid September 2014 in Denali National Park has been a best seller and is now an Alaska Railroad Award Winner featured in the ARR 2019 Calendar. Very excited to receive the calendar in the mail and see one of my photos in print!
My Wife's Favorites
As the saying goes, “we are our own worst critics”. I am reminded of this on occasion as my wife requests that I post or print a shot that I really didn’t feel was one of my better captures. Sometimes it takes months for me to heed her advice, but once done it has turned out to be some of my most praised work. I hope you will agree.
Along the Forest Floor
1 of 3 in the “Along the Forest Floor” series, this photo has been one that continually rose to the top when selecting photos for print. Not only one of my wife’s favorites, but the series of 3 is tops on my list also.
Along The Waters Edge
Whether a rolling river, gently flowing creek, the ripples of a slow moving tide or the complete silence of standing water, it is the reflection of light and the grounding effect which fascinates me the most when in the presence of water.
Once arrived, you simply know it is one of those places that makes the list.
Days Gone By
My early days exploring old mines, cabins and the sites with only a few remaining logs and some old cans & bottles strewn around in the mountains of Colorado is what drives my fascination with the lives of those that came before us.
Old Lookout on ARR
No idea the what or why on what appears to be an old lookout on the Alaska Railroad tracks just outside of Denali National Park. It is barely big enough for an adult to sit in.
This gallery could also be titled “right place right time”. That just didn’t sound artsy enough. Enjoy the shots that I consider to be nearly impossible for me to ever duplicate.
The Mountains Are Calling
A friend once ask me “how many pictures of snow capped mountains and mountain ranges can one person take?” Lots I answered!
It's The Little Things and the Less Obvious
It’s the little things in life that often have the biggest impact. And sometimes it’s the big things that just aren’t as obvious until seen through the lens of your camera. My wife often reminds me of that when we’re out taking pictures.
