My camera is my passport to see how other people live.

Born and raised on the rainy side of Washington state I made a blind jump to Montana over two decades ago. I remember knowing from a young age that all I wanted to do was to experience other cultures. My camera offered a chance to see the world because of skiing and climbing. My passion for the mountains and people led me to this work.

I've been specializing in photography and video full time for over 15 years. I am forever grateful and feel blessed. I manage an archive of 300K still images and videos. If you are looking to license stock content please contact me.

My experiences around the world with my camera seeing how people live and what they think has helped to shape who I am.

I have recently completed a year long UX and UI Design Thinking course. I am looking forward to combing these new skills into my commercial work.

I live in Bozeman, Montana with my wife, Anne Gilbert Chase.
