I’m a landscape photographer based in Southern California, United States. My adventure with photography started about 20 years ago, but my true passion didn’t manifest itself until photography became digital. I enjoy processing my images on a computer to make them appear as striking as the landscapes I see with my own eyes. I use simple techniques to keep my images looking realistic, avoiding an over processed appearance that can often result from using HDR. I’m inspired the most by unique locations of the world rarely seen or photographed, and I look for places that have no marks of human interaction or man-made objects in them. My primary goal is to capture the beauty of the place as created by nature, and nature alone. I have an appreciation for seascapes and mountainscapes the most, though I also enjoy night and occasionally macro photography as well. In 2018 I was honored to be named one of the top 25 Landscape Photographers in the World by capturelandscapes.com. Also, I was awarded Second Place in the International Landscape Photographer of the Year contest. In 2020 and 2021 I’ve won first place in the MPI 6th and 7th IIC – International Image Challenge in Landscape/Nature and Fine Art categories. I was also top winner for 2021 International Nature Photographer of the year. I came in second in the Nature category. My photographs have appeared in a large number of publications, including Photography Masterclass magazine, LeNs Magazine, Digital Photo Magazine, Creativ magazine, Shots! Portuguese Photography Magazine, Answer Magazine, Creative Quarterly Art Journal, Tamron Photography Magazine, and many more.
I currently shoot with Nikon Z8/Z9 cameras along with many Z-mount Nikon S lenses.
