The iconic landscapes, people, and way of life in the west are an important part of our country’s mythology.  I continue to capture images of the west and its vanishing heritage for present and future generations, and to promote an ethic of conservation, preservation and stewardship.

Ideally these images move you, and encourage you to help protect the west, it’s stunning landscapes, invaluable rivers, diverse wildlife, and irreplaceable ecosystems.  

Enjoy the images, and embrace the spirit that permeates this part of the world.

Thank you and make the most of the ride.
