Colorado is my home and playground. I'm outdoors in the mountains just about every week, and photography is my way of sharing and celebrating nature's beauty.
I try to provide a unique perspective of what I see, capturing the simple beauty of the shapes, spaces, and textures around me. Furthermore, I strive to have my artwork do more than just "look pretty" on its own -- I'm attempting to elicit a connection between the viewer and the artwork, where the images convey far more than the scene on the photograph.
My photographic background consists of a mixture of formal and informal studies. I've been heavily influenced by the black and white masters such as Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, as well as the countless hours I've spent in the darkroom for film photography.
Along with my wife Teri, a pastel artist (Teri Hoyer Art Works), I live outside Boulder, Colorado area, which is a short drive to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world (such as Rocky Mountain National Park).
My work has appeared in numerous juried art shows, both locally and outside of Colorado.
I currently use a Sony a7R III 42.4MP full-frame digital camera with a Sony 35mm F2.8 Sonnar full-frame prime lens.
For editing work, I use a 27" iMac with Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, and Nik filters (especially for my B&W work).
Prior to the Sony, I primarily used an Olympus OM-D E-M5 digital camera.
