Welcome to Mountain Man Photography!

Born at 9100' in the miner's hospital of a small Colorado mountain town called Silverton, I have spent my life in Colorado, exploring and experiencing the incredible beauty to be found here. My love for photography has grown from this exploration. Starting from a desire to capture the beauty that I witnessed, to a desire to share that beauty with my loved ones, and evolving into a desire to make a statement and an impact through photography.  My specialty is Fine Art Nature, Landscape and Wildlife photography and I hope that through this photography that you will be inspired to get out and enjoy this beautiful plant that we live on.
