Photo of the Day

Fresh photos from the American Southwest and my travels abroad. 

Welcome. This site is primarily meant to be a place for creative daily practice in image making and storytelling. Rather than being an area to view my portfolio, photo of the day is a sandbox of photographs and ideas. One of the greatest challenges artists face are editing and committing to a creative practice of showing up, day after day, consistently. This is my focus here. Although I may not post a finished photograph every single day, I am engaged in writing, photographing, or post-processing on a daily basis. This is my commitment to my craft, myself, on behalf of the natural world.
