‘Great American Road Trips’, includes routes to travel and photograph of course. This would include:
Route 66 (of which I’ve shot two books), Pacific Coast Highway, Big Sur to Mendocino, California, Four Corners ( a scenic loop of the Colorado Plateau), Florida Keys (all the way to Key West, before it is gone).
I’ve spent my life photographing the wild lands of the American West and Pacific Rim and the people who live here.
It’s been the realization of a dream to make a living showing people exploring and enjoying their environment, and to share their dreams through the looking glass that is photography.
