Keepers Of The West

Visions of the American West have long been a part of our culture, but the way of life of the cowboy and the family-run ranch is fast disappearing. In this project I hope to capture the essence of this way of life before it is gone.

I strive to create images that will remind us of a simpler life that has been a deep part of our history, one where hard work and stoicism are part of the daily experience, while at the same time sharing rich moments of grace and beauty in a life lived under the wide-open western skies.
