I'm a self-taught photographer. I got my first camera when I was 12, and it was a Russian-made 36mm Zorki-6. I have done my part of the dark-room magic and was a first adopter of early digital SLRs. I was shooting in different genres throughout my career but had particularly fallen in love with grand landscapes.
I get a real kick when I mount a giant high-resolution print and re-live the experience of being in front of the wonder of nature once again.
With the spread of the Internet, it became very easy to scout locations for the photoshoot by scrolling through images online or flying over the virtual landscape in Google Earth. But sometimes, I do actual flying to find interesting spots. I obtained my pilot license in 2012, and since then, I keep asking myself why did I learn to fly a plane and not a helicopter :) The Rocky Mountains are full of wonders, but there are almost no useable runways to land a plane.
My photo venture is pretty much a one-man gig. I do all steps from taking photos to processing, printing, mounting, framing, and crating for shipment.
This style of operation allows me to maintain very competitive prices on my limited edition prints. I don't offer open editions or mixed editions, and every print I make comes with a unique number.
I want to thank you for stopping by. Please check out the gallery, find information on purchasing options, and a page describing the process of finishing my prints to learn more.
