I love to explore our world and share my mind’s eye view of it with others.
I am very fortunate to live in a beautiful corner of the planet. The Pacific Northwest is a visual playground with scenic coastlines, wild streams, majestic peaks, and lush landscapes. The towering waterfalls and stunning vistas of the Columbia River Gorge are practically in my back yard and among my favorite destinations. Sports are one of my favorite things to capture, especially action sports like longboarding, triathalons and auto racing.
I’m surrounded by wonderful people, places, and things. It is my pleasure to share my vision of them with you.
I am available for commissioned work including event, concert, wedding, and specified landscape assignments. Contact me via email for details.

Worlds Beater?

Worlds Beater?

The USA’s fastest runner at the first leg of the Worlds; Kyle Patrick. Leg two is this weekend!

This weekend I am very much looking forward to the opportunity to shoot some of the most exciting motorsports I’ve ever witnesssed. Oregon’s new Global Jetsprint Facility will bring the world championships for Jet Sprint Boats to the USA. This week’s Image of the Week features the fastest USA entry from the first leg held in Missouri; World’s Beater?

The world championships are run in two legs; the first in Poplar Bluff, Mo earlier this month and the second just down I-5 in Lebanon Saturday and Sunday August 30 & 31. Our friends from Australia and New Zealand showed their muscle sweeping all of the podium positions in both classes in round one. The #151 boat, piloted by Kyle Patrick, was the fastest US boat completing the course just over four seconds off the class leading pace of the Kiwi Dave “Hoppy” Hopkins.

In this shot, captured last month at the USSBA races in Lebanon, his navigator was his daughter Alex. They are an Oregon based team and hope to use that local advantage to move up the board this weekend.

The races promise to be very exciting and well worth the price of admission. Check out the USSBA and Oregon Jetsprint pages for details and ticket information, we’ll see you there!
