I’ve had a love affair with photography for most of the past 30-plus years that began with working alongside my grandfather, Buzz Eiselein, in his darkroom.
Along the way, I've had the opportunity to document the world around me at its best, and worst, in my work as a photojournalist and have witnessed great changes in photography as film has faded into history and digital cameras have been put into the hands of nearly everyone.
I now work part-time at the Moscow Pullman Daily News in Moscow, Idaho, along with freelancing for various entities, including the Associated Press.
My images have appeared in publications and online around the world, most notably in the New York Times, the New York Post, Sports Illustrated, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Sydney Morning Tribune and the Seattle Times.
I was born in Kalispell, Montana into one of the state’s pioneering newspaper families and grew up along the U.S. – Mexico border in Nogales, Arizona, where I began freelancing for the Nogales International while in high school.
In addition to my work in journalism, I also shoot weddings and portraits, among other things. One of the strangest, and most challenging, projects I’ve done is photograph soil samples known as monoliths for a scientific database.
My wife, Anna, and I have been married for nearly 25 years. We have a daughter and two grandchildren, along with a dog and two cats.
