I assembled this website to display my photographs of the western United States. I began my career in Arizona where I live, photographing the Sonoran Desert, the Colorado Plateau and the mountains that connect them. In recent years I have been following US Route 89 north through Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. I was drawn to highway 89 by the seven national parks along its length from Mexico to Canada—Saguaro, Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier. In my travels, I have also photographed the beautiful places in between the parks, from national monuments to historic places, small towns and big cities. All of my photographs are available for licensing and for custom fine art prints. I hope you enjoy browsing my galleries as much as I did making the photographs.
