Photography has always been my favorite visual medium to capture and admire. Here you will see some of my digital and film photography that I've shot through the years.
Desert Textures is a black and white photo essay inspired by Utah's red rock country. All of the photos were taken across the scenic and unequaled landscapes of Southeastern Utah.
These photos are from very early on in my photo taking career when I had perhaps too much access to my high school's black room. All photos were shot and developed by me.

Southeastern Utah is one of the most stunning landscapes in the entire world that I've been fortunate to have in my backyard my entire life. Playing in the arid desert has been something that began in my childhood and continues to be a significant source of inspiration in my life. One of my favorite aspects of red rock country is that beyond the stark red landscapes is the deep, intricate textures that exist in the untamed desert. Millions of years of wind, water, and ice, crack, scrape, and smooth the sandstone canvas of Utah. This texture is beautifully captured in black and white where the shapes and textures of the rock is presented in all it's intricate and ancient splendor.
One of my first serious forays into photography was a black and white film class in high school. My friends and I were elated to get endless rolls of black and white film and found ways to break into our school's darkroom to develop our film and make endless prints before and after school. These are some of the better shots that I took with a Nikon FM2 and developed the old fashioned way with developing chemicals, reels, projectors, and photo paper.
Sometimes you don't necessarily plan on taking photos but just go on a road trip with nothing but your cell phone. These photos were taken with an iPhone but go to show that when the lighting is right and you always work on your composition good photos are still achievable.
This is more a collection of the "everything else" photos that I've taken over the years. All of these photos are digital photos taken with either a Nikon D90, Sony A7s, or Canon 5D.
