While exploring this scenic and expansive territory, Alan takes time to photograph shells and flowers he finds in mountain streams and valleys. His images capture the perfection and fragility of objects found in nature and serve to remind us of our human impact upon the natural environment. "Producing images which inspire and move the viewer" is both Alan's goal and his reward for his life's work.
Alan's photographs have been exhibited throughout the Northwest and are included in private and public collections. He is also represented through stock agencies and corporate art dealers. His images have appeared as posters, greeting cards, in advertising campaigns, calendars, and many national magazines including Backpacker, Country Journal, and US News and World Report.
