I’m currently studying forestry at the University of Maine at Orono; when I get a break I take off and climb a mountain, living out of the back of my pickup when I get a chance at a longer trip, or the motorcycle if I’m feeling crazy or bothered to check the forecast. I shoot a Nikon D300, and, when I know I’m going to have a chance at a great shot, I carry a Tachihara 4X5 field camera, which exposes negatives that are about the size of a postcard. The detail from this camera is incredible, and as far as digital has come, film still trumps all sometimes.

Why do I make photographs? Who knows… Because I can? I love climbing mountains, and I come from a family of photographers, two plus two is what you see here. I make my best exposures when I’m feeling that euphoria you get when you stand on top of a mountain alone, and when I see my work some of that feeling comes back. It feeds itself like that, more climbing, more memories, it’s great.

Ask away if you’re wondering about anything else.
