Published Work

The Forest Service, in partnership with the Pacific Crest Trail Association, recently completed Northern Sierra, Map#5 of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail. After their ambitious project of mapping the entire trail is finished there will be 10 maps covering its entire 2650 mile length from Mexico to Canada. On the cover is a photo I made while thru-hiking the PCT in 2003. I stopped and made camp here so I could photograph this hillside of Balsamroot and Lupine with the pointy spires of Sierra Buttes in the distance. I was well short of my 20 mi goal for the day but this scene was simply too pretty to pass up. This section of the PCT is where the rugged Sierra Nevada gradually transition into the Cascade Mountains. It is here that polished granite, scraped clean from the retreating glaciers of the last ice age, gives way to lava rock and volcanoes. It is a beautiful section of trail.

Mount St. Helens Poster Sale

With the 31st anniversary of the May 18, 1980 eruption approaching, I've discounted my popular Mount St. Helens posters a full 50% through the month of May. To sweeten the deal, buy one of each title and you'll receive an additional 25% discount. These posters look fantastic in a simple 18 x 24 thin black frame. Sale ends May 31, 12:00 PST.

Fire and Ice and March 8th, 2005 were captured on film during Mount St. Helens' most recent eruptive phase (2004-2007). Many consider these two photographs among the most dramatic post-1980 images ever captured. They certainly represent some of my finest work to date.

The posters are printed right here in Portland, Oregon, using an offset press.
