The past few months I have been posting gear reviews and snippets of stories about a rather epic road trip with my good friend Stuart Peck over the summer. Now I can share the whole story! We pitched a story idea to a great regional magazine about the most dangerous hikes in the lower Appalachians and […]


My good friend Stuart and I embarked on a quest to search out and explore some of the most dangerous hikes and trails in the Blue Ridge Mountain area of the Appalachians last week for Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine. We traveled to Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia & Kentucky and found a couple of the toughest […]


One of the fun and most challenging things I get to do is photograph lots of students. In particular, this spring I got to shoot 20 students from the Gatton Academy for Math & Science that are participating in a summer research program. Some are staying on campus at WKU, while others are working around […]

  Relationships are at the core of just about everything on earth, from your neighbors to who you tie-in with on the sharp end of a climb. And these relationships are invaluable… and the effort it takes to build these relationships is often a mammoth undertaking, which makes the end result even more special. I […]


I had the opportunity to spend the afternoon in rural Kentucky this summer documenting the art of gunsmithing. The world-famous House brothers and WKU host an annual workshop where participants spend a week honing their craft over forges, wood shavings and local watermelon. The level of detail and artistry is amazing! It was also a […]

Peru 2013

I just returned from my second summer with the American Alpine Club’s science research program in Peru, and I have finally edited a few photos! This year’s American Climber Science Program trip was fantastic. Everything went extremely well. I nabbed four summits over 5400m in four weeks and made some of my best pictures to […]


Six years ago, I photographed Sarah’s wedding, above, in Lexington. We had an awesome day in the downtown area and bid the happy couple good luck. To my surprise, I received an email a few weeks ago from Sarah. Life happened and things had changed. Sarah & Jeff had met three years ago, moved around […]


China Trip

You may have noticed in my year-end recap of 2011 that there were a few images from Asia. I had the opportunity to travel for WKU to China for 2 weeks in December. Primarily, my co-worker Amy & I documented the Confucius Institute global conference and the signing of partnerships with two Chinese universities. We […]
