I consider myself a collector of sorts. I collect fossils in the Utah desert, vibrant tropical bird feathers in the Florida mangroves, and intricate seashells from the Honduran reefs while free diving. I see my photography as an extension of the tangible keepsakes I treasure. The first climbing photograph I ever took on film is still framed in my home. Ever since that first day out shooting cliff faces in my backyard, my passion for garnering memories has taken me to remote areas around the world where I find solace in the opportunity to capture wild places with my Nikon lens.
