At 55, I have spent half my life photographing and writing about skiing and ski mountaineering. It’s been my pleasure and good fortune to travel the world’s mountains — including four of its tallest peaks — with friends intent on capturing the adventure of ski-touring, alpine climbing, and ski descent. Just one of the many gratifications such journeys provide is working with the indigenous peoples of remote locales, in the process learning something of their culture and becoming their friends.
My photos and articles from Jackson Hole, Alaska, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Antarctica have appeared in numerous national and international publications, including Powder, Backcountry, Men’s Journal, ESPN, Fall Line, Fluid, Powder Hound, and FreeSkier. I shoot commercial assignments and stock for clients such as Cloudveil, Patagonia, The North Face, and Marmot. I am co-owner of Focus Productions, Inc. (focusproductions.com) with another longtime Jackson Hole photographer, Bob Woodall, and publish three annual visitors’ guides: Jackson Hole Skier, Mountain Country, and the Jackson Hole Dining Guide. In the winter of 2006/07, I will shoot a ski adventure in Kashmir.
