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, as well as my countless hours spent in the darkroom (both chemical and digital).
Along with my wife Teri, a pastel artist (Teri Hoyer Art Works), we live in the 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 within other parts of the United States.
Limited Edition Prints
Available for purchase are limited edition prints of the images displayed on this site.
For small and medium prints, I print all images using archival inks and paper (Epson SureColor P800), and mount all images on acid-free mat board. For larger prints, I work with local professional print shops to provide large format printing options.
I am also available for on-site photo shoots, or for event or marketing photography. Half-day or full-day options are available.
For example, some of my shots have been used as marketing material for a local festival, and a landscape image is displayed in the lobby of a large hi-tech company in Fort Collins, 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 (with multiple lenses). I have also been known to use an Apple iPhone on occasion.
