Beautiful time in the Columbia River Gorge in the Pacific Northwest. I wanted to show the contrast between still cold days yet many trees springing to life early spring. despite of the drama of swirling fog in the valley there is new life slowly and peacefully unfolding with fresh color in the foreground.

I have been fascinated with photography since the age of 13. I learned the basic photography skills on simple analog cameras, without light meters. The science behind image capture was as important to me as the visual expression through the medium. Initially, I could easily say, everything was image worthy, then my interest narrowed down to cultural photojournalism and landscape photography, finding excitement in working with ethnic groups then seeking solace in the mountains soaking up the natural beauty of our planet. For many years now I have been traveling to the far reaches of the world immersing myself in vanishing cultures as well as wandering off the beaten path to capture most remarkable landscapes. My images are not meant to simply represent the reality but they are my personal rendition of the photographed scene and ultimately should spark curiosity and have a soothing effect on the viewer.
