As if we are discovering them for the first time together, explore the intimate pockets and expansive vistas of America’s exotic yet local National Parks.

“Even though my path through the American West had been traveled before, I couldn’t help but feel this incredibly romantic notion that I was the first person to discover these natural wonders.”

    “There’s something incredibly seductive about the velvety-soft water. I loved capturing that in contrast to the angular trees and rocks that frame the river.”

  • Yosemite Awakens


     

    “The light peeking through the trees was heavenly and unexpected yet more than welcome. Today, Mother Nature delivered a moment I’ll never forget.”

  • Sea Stacks


     

    “The contrast between these rocks and the trees that have managed to call them home reminds me of the almighty will of our natural world.”

  • Transcendence


     

    “I was awestruck by the magnitude of the rock, especially reflected and perfectly preserved in the crystalline, free-flowing Merced River.”

  • INNOCENT waters


     

    “Found deep in the Oregon forest, scenes like this waterfall felt like I had stumbled upon paradise or a page out of a children’s storybook.”
