Great Basin Life exists … between … high desert expanses and majestic mountain wilderness.

Daily, I watch the winds of change sweeping away what remains of our western culture and heritage, and the land that has produced them.

My mission is to preserve as much as I can, of that which will soon vanish, through my photography.

    Very professional and forceful capture! That’s right, the model deserves compliments as the photographer does. Indeed they work as one big whole. Modesty adorns people. However, the photographer picks up what should be captured and the detailed way it has be done. Congrats!

  • Thanks, so much!
