Guide & Photographer


Passion for the outdoors and fishing – the sport, the wildlife, the environment, and especially the people who love the angling lifestyle – fuels my visual imagery. As a documentary photographer and videographer, my emphasis is on telling the stories of the sport that I love in authentic ways that resonate with those who also love fishing.

My style emphasizes using natural light and found objects, using minimal editing, and producing powerful images that convey what it is that makes fishing so extraordinary. My approach is to focus on the relationships inherent in fishing and outdoor recreation: between the sportsmen, the fish, the rivers and lakes, the environment and climate, the equipment, and especially the emotions of those involved. My mission is to capture this interplay and convey fishing's complex stories to passionate audiences, whether via editorial or commercial media.
