Monkeys on the Mount

Badami is a tiny town, though anything but quiet. The streets are overwhelmed with the sounds of cars, busses, rickshaws, horses all honking, and people yelling. I left the busy street and climbed up inside the cliffs enjoying the peace and quiet and making friends monkeys. I climbed and sat amongst the family. They took little notice of me, almost immediately accepting my presence.

I've worked all over her globe with a diverse set of clients that offer a diverse set of challenges; every one of them a learning opportunity. Whether I'm hanging off a frozen waterfall shooting ice climbing or in a studio working with a model I am adapting, learning, and improving. I've created a mobile studio in the middle of a wild adventure race in southern Patagonia and fought with monkeys to keep my grapes in southern India. Whatever the challenge I will get the shot.

With my photography background firmly formed in the commercial advertising arena, I bring that attention to detail and technical process to adventure photography. And I've spent my entire life adventuring, so I can get any angle you can imagine.

I feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place as Boulder, CO. When I'm not shooting for clients I'm out climbing rocks or frozen waterfalls, or cruising down in the backcountry on my skis.
