Some underwater photos I took while on a snorkelling trip with humpback whales off the coast of the Dominican Republic.

This humpback whale calf was incredibly playful and inquisitive. Even getting rowdy at one point swimming directly at us and then veering off. Clearly having a great time entertaining itself with us while its mother rested below, she seemed to be quite thankful she had found a babysitter to entertain her rambunctious child.

This past spring I was able to take my boys with me on their first backcountry trip to the Olympic Coast. Needless to say they had a blast playing on the beaches and looking in tide pools. I spent less time on photography and more time on showing them some of the amazing places in the Pacific Northwest. Still managed to come away with a couple of decent images.

Was fortunate to have one of my images published in Outdoor Photographer (July 2015). Took this shot at Two Medicine Lake in Glacier National Park on a fall trip.
My images are now available at
Walnut Street Gallery in Ankeny. Be sure to stop in and check them out. I just delivered a large batch to them this morning, so there should be a lot to choose from!
