"I love to shoot athletes in big epic landscapes, locations that tell a story, and let the viewer feel a part of the scene."

A couple years back we thought about what was important to us, packed up and moved from SF to Deep Cove, a little town just north of Vancouver, Canada. The picture of above, that's the view from our house, oh and that's us on the boards.
My wife jokes that the only time I take pictures of her is when she is jumping, running, or hiking -never when she is dressed up ready for a night on the town.
I can't sit still which makes post production a chore, I had to make my desk standing only and converted my small studio into a bouldering area. Take-away; computers and cameras do not like chalk.
