Photography

I have always been interested in photography. Back in the Dark Ages before the Internet and digital cameras, I occasionally used my father’s Pentax 35mm film SLR. I enjoyed taking photographs and learned about aperture, f-stops, etc. However, I never had enough practice to excel. At that time, every shot cost money for film and addidtional money for developing. Frankly, in my youth, I was more enthralled with these new devices called “personal computers” (yes, I was alive before computers and before the Internet).

It wasn’t until 20 years later that I finally decided to actively pursue photography. I am an avid caver, and I was inspired by the amazing photographs from fellow cavers, like Travis Scott, Jim Jasek, and Ernie Garza.

Caves are a beautiful and unique environment that most of the world will never experience. My goal is to photograph these awe-inspiring underground marvels share them with the world. I want to bring these marvels to light, to make them real to the people who might never get to see them in person. I want people to be awe-inspired like I am every time I am in a cave. I want people to see the beauty of caves, treasure caves, and help protect them.

Help support cave photography by purchasing prints of these spectacular images to adorn your walls. Prints are available a variety of sizes from 8″×10″ up to poster-size 24″×36″. All images are professionally printed on high-quality Kodak Endura Metallic paper, which gives a remarkable three-dimensional sheen to the images.

My edition of the Texas Cavers Calendar represents some of my best cave photography. This calendar is out-of-print and has limited quantities remaining. Get yours today before they’re all gone!

Texas Cavers Calendar

Every few years, Texas cave photographers put out a cave calendar. I wanted to contribute my own calendar. I had a vision. I didn’t want a calendar of naked people who happened to be in a cave. I wanted the emphasis to be Texas caves which happened to have naked people in them. These are the amazing results of my endeavor.
