Welcome to my website.
I have lived in Fairbanks, Alaska for the past 30 years. I teach photojournalism and fine art photography at the University of Alaska Fairbanks-a job I love and appreciate.
In the meantime I have actively and passionately pursued all kinds of photography, as you'll see here.
Somewhere along the way I have won awards for the work, including the Oskar Barnack Award at World Press Photo, POY awards, and others. I've also had a number of solo shows in and out of Alaska. My prints have been collected by individuals and a number of museum collections.
I've been published widely, in such publications as the the New York Times, Outside Magazine, Time, LIFE, GEO, and many others. I've also been in the Pictures of the Year issues in Time, LIFE, Stern, and the Photography Annuals of PDN and Communication Arts.
I photograph my kids, my friends, my travels, life and landscape around me, and assignment and commercial work that comes my way. I cover Alaska stories for the New York Times, and I am represented by the Well Street Art Co. (Fairbanks) and Getty Images.
I hope you enjoy the photos.
Thanks for visiting!
