"During my 28 year career as a professional photographer I've spent most of my free weekends and vacations traveling through Minnesota’s Parks and Forests capturing the beauty of the wilderness. I photograph extensively on The North Shore of Lake Superior and in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, both arguably some of the most beautiful places in the country."
