Thanks for visiting! I have been blessed to live in the great Pacific Northwest near Seattle, WA for 29 years, which certainly has been the catalyst for my Photography. I started many years ago with film, but never with any vigor. In 2003 I was on a camping trip on Mt Rainier with some 35mm film, and I witnessed one of the most life changing scenes, the type where you can still feel the crispness of the air, the smells, the sounds, and all of the beauty that God has infused into this planet - A magnificent Sunrise over Mt Rainier. Since that day I have moved to 100% digital, using Minolta, Olympus, and Nikon. It has always been my intent to capture the world as God created it, as such I do not over process my photos. If I do, I will say.
I still have a lot to learn ( We all do ), and all your critique is greatly appreciated, I will always try to do the same for you.
Do not be afraid to critique my photos in your comments!

"I can't believe I've never left you a testimonial....well here goes....
Jeff is a solid bro. A great photographer that concentrates on quality rather than quantity. I am so jealous of where he lives, being so close to the mountains. I'm sure he's equally jealous of Mr. Belvedere. An all around great contact to have. Even if he uses black frames too much......."

"Back in the gfaqs days when I started Jeff was always the guy I would listen to. He helped me grow as a photog even without knowing, just checking his work and seeing his enthusiasm gave me imput to get better. I really have to thank this fun guy, I felt that my first testimonial had to be this one.
Keep it up!"

"Jeff's work was among the very first that inspired me here at Flickr. He is a remarkable photographer who is always willing to share his knowledge and expertise, and occasionally a tripod and gloves if conditions calls for them, lol. Truely one of the best photographers and nicest people I have had the pleasure to meet through Flickr!
Thanks for your inspirations Jeff!"

"It has been a delight to watch the rapid progression of Jeff's talent as a photographer. He has developed a superb eye for framing the perfect shot. His photos draw you into the scene. I must agree that he really knows his stuff, and is always happy to share technique and advice."

"Jeff is a really good guy, but perhaps more importantly, he's a delightful photographer. I always look forward to seeing more fresh stuff from him. He knows what he's doing; so if you don't yet know what *you* are doing, pay attention and ask him questions. You'll be glad you did."
