I love to photograph animals. Especially farm animals, farm life, and dogs. My work takes me all over the Pacific Northwest, in any type of weather, almost anytime of day.
Having grown up on the edge of town in Iowa, I’ve been drawn to small farms and animals as long as I can remember. As children we would sit on the back of the cows at our local small dairy while Mr. Moss milked them by hand. He'd send us home with fresh raw milk, still warm in the bottle. Clearly I should have been a farmer! Instead, I photograph them. Life on the farm, mostly into the eyes of the farm animals. I try to create images that invite you into a story. Or at least tweak your curiosity about the story. My goal is to bring you in close. Close enough so you feel involved in the moment.
One of the perks of working with local farmers is that I meet wonderful dedicated people. Each with their own passionate commitment to farming. I can't express enough how grateful I am to this amazing group of dedicated individuals.
Aside from getting up early and coming home late from chasing the light, I spent a lot of time at my computer working on the images, infusing each one with my own personal style. And when I'm not doing that, you will find me outside working with and training my dogs. We dabble in rally, obedience, and herding. And even compete a bit.
I’m always on the lookout for farm locations. With social media driving the way we connect, getting nice photos of your farm and animals in exchange for letting me photograph and use the images for my fine art composite work is an easy way to get some great visuals for your website or FB page. Win/win foreveryone! I know farms are muddy in the winter and spring, and oftentimes cluttered and hectic. Not to worry! I can tease out the winning shots. Send me a note, or give me a call. I’d love to work with you!
