2021: My Year in Pictures
December 30, 2021

Every year, in late December, I go back and review the images I captured over the previous 12 months. I love reminiscing about the trips I took, reliving the moments I experienced, the things that I saw...

Off the Beaten Path in Acadia
October 20, 2021  |  Acadia National Park, Maine

Acadia National Park has many well-known and iconic locations, which I love to photograph. Places like Boulder Beach, Otter Cliff, Jordan Pond, and Cadillac Mountain. But as the park has become more crowded in recent years, it's been more difficult to photograph in those places with more people around...

Recalling Colorado
October 4, 2021  |  Ouray, Colorado

A year ago this week I was returning from an amazing trip to Colorado, where I photographed the aspens in all their golden glory as they turned their autumn colors. I was joined by Kristen Wilkinson as we explored western Colorado, capturing peak color in places like Aspen, Ouray, Telluride, and Silverton...

Exploring the Oregon Coast
September 26, 2021  |  Oregon

The Oregon Coast, and the Pacific Northwest in general, have long held my interest as a place I'd like to spend more time in and photograph. I've made three trips previously, but still felt I had a lot of unexplored territory there...

Downeast Adventure
August 8, 2021  |  Cutler, Maine

This past weekend, I had planned to head down east to Lubec, Maine, and take a puffin tour to Machias Seal Island, where these adorable seabirds nest during the summer. This was my second attempt. Spots for the season are very limited and reservations for the entire summer are typically gone within three days of being made available...

Father & Son in the Sawtooth Mountains
July 23, 2021  |  Stanley, Idaho

After my second visit to the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho, I'm passionately in love with this area of the country. The landscape is just beautiful. Rolling hills, leading to jagged mountain peaks, with alpine lakes nestled among them...

Working in the Swamp
May 31, 2021  |  Louisiana

Last week, I took a road trip where the ultimate destination was my buddy Andy Crawford's place in south central Louisiana. Andy's work had shown me just how beautiful the swamps down there can be, so when he invited me down and sent me his availability, I jumped on some dates that matched up for me, which also resulted in a nearly three week long odyssey due to my trip to Cape Cod which had been previously planned...

Exploring the Outer Banks
April 18, 2021  |  Bodie Island, North Carolina

I'd never been to North Carolina's Outer Banks before last week. I'd heard plenty and it always seemed like someplace I'd like to go. In many ways, the area reminded me of the Jersey Shore, and Long Beach Island, where I spent many summers growing up, but it was also very different as well...
