As a geologist and teacher, I started taking photographs to illustrate concepts to my students. Soon I became intrigued by the challenges of representing a three-dimensional world with an engaging, two-dimensional image. I often use long exposures and alternative light sources, either at night or with infrared light.

I enjoy visiting new places, and exploring each location goes hand-in-hand with my photography.

Photography helps me see the details, colors, and shapes that are the location’s unique characteristics. I work to create a sense of the place and to build memories.
