We were not pioneers ourselves, but we journeyed over old trails that were new to us, and with hearts open. Who shall distinguish? -- J. Monroe Thorington
In 1972, my interest in photography was sparked after I began mountain climbing in the Oregon Cascades. Since then, as an avid climber, skier, hiker, and backpacker, I have extensively explored and photographed in the mountains of the northwestern U.S. and western Canada.
My photography would not be possible without the love, support and companionship of my wife Diane. Together we have shared over forty years of life experiences and exploration of these mountains.
My photography is dedicated to my parents, John and Prudence, who nurtured my appreciation for the outdoors, my brother Peter, the memory of Mark Skinner with whom I learned the way of the mountains, and all who appreciate and work to preserve the environment and public lands through their foresight and efforts -- past, present and future.
