November 2020: Now offering Giant Wall Murals!

Now offering Giant Wall Murals!

In addition to my fine art prints, I am excited to now offer custom-sized, ready-to-install wall murals! From dramatic mountain landscapes to calming forest scenes, these immersive murals bring a large dose of natural ambiance and colorful beauty into your home, office, restaurant, retail space, or care center.

These high quality wall murals are printed on a sturdy vinyl material with a lightly textured matte surface that displays excellent clarity and vibrant color without any distracting shine or reflections. The vinyl material features an adhesive back that sticks to the wall securely but not permanently, allowing for easy installation.

Each mural is custom printed to the exact size of your wall. If you or someone you know wants to fill a wall with a giant and immersive nature or landscape mural, I've got your covered!

November 2020: Frame Focus Foto Podcast Interview

Yesterday I was interviewed on the Frame Focus Foto podcast. This was a truly global conversation, with me in Colorado, Mike in Hong Kong, and Len in Scotland! We discussed a range of photography topics including my early inspirations, my photo styles and preferences, planning and envisioning my photo objectives, my days of large format film photography, my WideRange Galleries photo website services, the Nature First Photography movement, and much more! You can listen to the episode above, or here.

June 2020: MountainPhotographer.com Blog is Retired

I have officially retired my WordPress blog over at MountainPhotographer.com. I encourage you to follow my Photo Journal here instead, which is the sole place where I will be posting all my new photo galleries and trip reports from now on.

If you use an RSS feed reader (like Feedly, for example) please sign up to my gallery site’s Photo Journal RSS feed; here is the direct address: https://www.mountainphotography.com/rss.xml

Of course I will keep the MountainPhotographer blog up and running as an archive of all the old posts and comments, but I don’t plan on adding anything more there. So, please just remember to check my Photo Journal instead of the blog to follow my latest adventures from now on!

April 2020: Seek Outside Podcast

Yesterday I was interviewed on Seek Outside's podcast; you can listen to it above, or look it up in your favorite podcast app. Based here locally on the western slope of Colorado, Seek Outside is an outdoor gear company who builds the best backpacks on the market (in my opinion) as well as a complete line of tents and titanium tent stoves. For the last couple of years I've been a Seek Outside ambassador and have done extensive prototype testing to help refine their Exposure and Flight series of backpacks.

On the podcast we discussed a variety of topics including my backpacking photography strategies, scouting and planning trips, backpacking and camera gear I use, how I got started in my photography business, my favorite mountain ranges, photo location sharing, and my thoughts on the COVID-19 pandemic and how it is currently affecting our outdoor adventures (or lack thereof). I hope you enjoy the talk!

2020: Colorado 14ers Gallery and More

Colorado 14ers Gallery and More

After years of neglect I recently took the time to revamp my Colorado 14ers gallery. The 14ers (aka, fourteeners) are the mountains in Colorado over 14,000 feet in elevation, and this gallery displays a curated collection of my best 14ers photos from around the state.

Other recent additions include a gallery of mountain panoramas, and a new gallery called Peak Portraits which shows portraits of mountains front-and-center much like people portraits would be photographed, but on a landscape scale.

December 2017: Interview on F-Stop Collaborate and Listen Podcast

Recently I was interviewed by fellow Colorado photographer Matt Payne, on his podcast "F-Stop Collaborate and Listen". You can look up the podcast in your favorite podcast app, listen to it above, or hear it here. I was happy that Matt invited me to participate on his podcast, since it's one of my favorite podcasts that I listen to regularly. The podcast is devoted to landscape and nature photography, and I enjoy the casual conversation format of each episode. I've been binge listing in recent months; there's almost 3 dozen episodes up already featuring a wide variety of talented and insightful photographers. (Matt himself is a very talented and insightful photographer too!) Many of his guests are very well spoken; me - not so much! But I hope you enjoy it anyways.

May - July 2015: Exhibit at Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum

Exhibit at Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum

I am honored to announce that the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum in Golden, Colorado is currently displaying an exhibit of my photography in the entrance hall of the museum through the end of July.

A joint venture of the American Alpine Club, the Colorado Mountain Club, and the National Geographic Society, the 3,500-square-foot museum is the centerpiece of the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, Colorado. The museum is the only one in the United States exclusively dedicated to rock climbing and mountaineering, with exhibits on history, mountain cultures, safety and equipment, and more.

Considering the nature of the venue, I selected seven “high altitude” photos to display, from locations including Colorado, Nepal, Peru, Patagonia, and Switzerland.

The museum is located at 710 10th Street, Golden, CO 80401. Keep an eye out for their once-a-month “Thirsty Thursday” event each month offering gear, beer, live music, and free museum admission!
