Make yourself at home and browse through my photo galleries.

A little about me…I love to spend time outdoors hiking and

capturing images of some of the wonderful sites I've been lucky enough to visit.

 

Landscape and wildlife photography are my main subjects, but I

also enjoy shooting a wide range of photographic subjects.

 

I currently reside in the state of Nevada but lived most of my

life in Michigan. I love to capture the sites of both great states and

surrounding areas, especially Michigan’s Upper Peninsula which features

waterfalls, sandstone cliffs and vast areas of wilderness. The dramatic power of

Lake Superior is awe-inspiring.

 

I also love to capture the beautiful scenery of the Desert

Southwest, from the red rocks and unique formations to the numerous canyons and

the fiery southwestern sunsets.

 

If you're going to be in the Las Vegas area and would like a

personal photography tour that gets you to all the right locations and provides

help with any shooting or technical questions, please contact me for dates and

pricing. Valley Of Fire, Red Rock Canyon, Lake Mead, Death Valley, and Zion

National Park are some of the locations within easy driving range from Las

Vegas. Other locations are available upon request.

James is one of the first U.P. photographers that I have met on Flickr. He has helped me out a ton with planning trips to locations that I would have otherwise overlooked. With his advice on different places and the best times to shoot each one he has really had an impact on my photography! :) I appreciate his helpfulness and genuine kindness. It's hard to find people as willing to spend time explaining things like he does. He is like a walking book of knowledge on the Upper Peninsula. James has an awesome eye for composition. He always finds interesting angles to shoot from that most people would overlook. He's not afraid to go that extra mile or jump a fence or two to get the perfect shot ;). His work is unique and stunning and it is always a pleasure to see something new from him. He never ceases to amaze me with his captures. There is so much texture, clarity and brilliant saturation of colors in his photographs that really bring to life each location. It has been a pleasure to get to know him :) and I constantly look forward to seeing more of his work. :)
