“365 Days of Pikes Peak ~ The Journey” 

 

The Project

Every person in our community has a connection to Pikes Peak, America’s Mountain in one way or another. For me, it’s best summed up by saying that when I return from a trip, I see Pikes Peak and say “There’s my mountain!” and instantly feel at home.

As a photographer, I thought I looked at the peak more than others, but once I started displaying my photographs of Pikes Peak, I learned I wasn’t the only one moved by its beauty. This inspired me to share Pikes Peak with the world through photography… because it isn’t just my mountain, it is America’s mountain.

Pikes Peak is the most visited mountain in North America and the second most visited mountain in the world behind Japan’s Mount Fuji. And over a half million people reach the summit house every year by the Pikes Peak Highway, Barr Trail or the Pikes Peak Cog Railway.

From June 1, 2010 to May 31, 2011 I set to capture a unique photograph of Pikes Peak every day for an entire year and share it with the world. This book is the culmination of those photographs and the story of what it took to get that picture each day.

What I Am Up To Today…

Today, I am an FAA Licensed Unmanned Aircraft Pilot (A Drone Pilot) and keep my passion for photography alive and well through Aerial Photography and Videography Services! My wife and I love to hike and enjoy all that Colorado has to offer, and having the ability to pack a drone in and capture it on video in way seldom seen – is exciting for me. I am an entrepreneur and adventurer at heart, and this profession provides the opportunity to indulge in all facets of my “work” (if you can call it that with a straight face). I specialize in Commercial and Residential Real Estate Drone Photography/Videography and if you have a unique property or business that needs to be showcased through aerial photography, I would love to help you show it off!
