Your Squaw Valley

Fury: Lake Tahoe when she’s mad

Not everyone who visits Lake Tahoe has the same experience. But everyone who visits Lake Tahoe wants to remember their experience and share it with their family and friends. They want to remember how it made them feel, and help others understand why they felt that way.

The Lake Begins To Stir

Lake Tahoe has a magnetic force. It holds one’s rapt attention. And we want to own a little of that magic ourselves and take it back home with us.

But not everyone is a photographer or storyteller.

As a “visual storyteller” and resident of Squaw Valley, CA, it’s my job to gain and earn enrollment from you.

Historic Downtown Truckee, CA

My aim is to capture some of Tahoe’s magic, braving the notion of being good enough to share my view of this beautiful place in a way that makes perfect sense to you. In a way that helps you remember how you felt when you were here. In a way you can better help others understand why you love it here so much.

Good photography and stories tell. Great photography and stories engage. Good photography and stories change how we think. Great photography and stories change how we feel and what we do.

Peace Portal: Tahoe City Marina

It is my aspiration to be a great visual storyteller and I’d like to make it worth your while to join me on this journey. I look forward to sharing the magic of Tahoe and her surrounding areas with you.

If you’re interested in coming along for the ride, please send me your email address and I’ll include you on a special mailing list with some of my best work and relevant information.

And if you should decide to invest in any of it, know that it won’t break the bank.

Twilight Zone, Squaw Valley Style

You see, I don’t have a physical art gallery, nor the overhead expenses associated with one. But I use the same quality, high-end labs the best-of-the-best photographers use to deliver you the highest quality prints in any format you want.

Local Authority

In other words, my prints aren’t obscenely over-priced. They’re affordable and they’ll help you remember how you felt when you visited Lake Tahoe.

Currently, I’m working on a really cool website showcasing my photography. In the meantime, please join me on this visual storytelling journey (or share this with a friend) by sending your email address to: Please put “Tahoe Magic” in the subject line. Thank You!
