Lake Ice Study
We’re still quite frozen up here in MN. But at least the melt is starting soon -hopefully.
Even so, there is something beautiful about this time of year.Read More
We are the reasons why we don’t succeed at our goals. Fear prevents us from taking the steps necessary to move in the direction we are called. End the fear. Move. Make it happen.Read More

I was recently commissioned to photograph & film a set of videos for Dalseth Dental in Apple Valley, MN as they update their website and marketing needs. My assistant and I spent many hours on-site studying this beautiful prairie style building designed by ALTUS while capturing architectural stills & video for my client.Read More
At the end of August (2018) I made the long drive east towards door county Wisconsin to capture the exteriors of the new Egg Harbor library for my client, Jim Sheilds of HGA Architects & Engineers.Read More
I was recently commissioned to photograph four St. Croix River Vally hospital locations for Health Partners in Minneapolis, MN. The location featured in this Photo of the Day (POTD) is of the newer addition to the Hudson Hospital which was designed by the fabulous architectural firm Perkins + Will.
The light was perfectly caressing the building's exterior and surrounding landscaping as it began to set, and of course, was changing quickly. I was already set up for the wide-angle 'hero' shot with my primary camera (the Fujifilm GFX 50s) and couldn’t afford to miss out on that image but was enamored with so many other little vignettes of the building’s entrance that I grabbed my little Fujifilm X100f and began capturing those images as quickly as possible in order to return to my primary camera for the moment I was waiting for.Read More
Hey everyone! Can you believe we are almost through the first quarter of 2018!? Crazy…
This year is off to an amazing start for me and I wanted to share with you all an update on last year and what to expect from me this year.
2017 was an insanely good year filled with many awesome projects which have kept me very busy into this first quarter of 2018. Last year went down as my best year ever since 2007, not only in the amount of jobs booked but also in the types of projects I took on.
While my primary focus is (and always will be) on architectural photography,Read More
The other day I headed into downtown St. Paul to walk, talk, and photograph with a friend of mine. Below is a small set of my favorite images from that day.Read More
I like to go back through old, rejected photographs to see if there is anything that I 'threw away' that should be kept or could be part of a new personal project. And it never ceases to amaze me that there is always a photo or two (or more) that I should have marked as a 'keeper' but because of my mindset at the time I did not.Read More
Like most of us here in Minnesota, I was experiencing a bit of cabin fever a few weeks ago. We spend so much time indoors that any day that is sunny and (relatively warm) makes us all want to put aside our daily duties and head outdoors. The fact that we had a record breaking warm streak in February made focusing all the more difficult.Read More
Humility is one thing, self-hate is another.
Stop hating yourself - get over it. Dust yourself off and get yourself out there.
You are an incredibly talented person. And your talents are being wasted right now.
At the end of January I had the honor of photographing once again for the good people over at the Milwaukee Art Museum. This time their need was to create a series of images that capture a one-of-a-kind installation called Inherent Innate Tension by conceptual artist, Lawrence Weiner.Read More
