Photography, Philosophy & Adventures

The Future of Photojournalism

Shrinking editorial budgets, increasing competition, and mistrust of the press are just some of the factors impacting the future of photojournalism, but the power of photography endures and technology is allowing photographers more creative freedom than before.

It’s Only Data Until You Print It

The term "graphics" is a more appropriate genre for the overabundance of images flowing through the Internet which are visually digested by millions of users daily, and which a majority I personally find without a soul, or pertaining to some meaningful topic, or relevance, other than to entice a "follow", "heart", or "like" click.

Signal Butte

The North Platte River basin is often considered one of the last western frontiers to tourist and visitors arriving in western Nebraska as they visit the Oregon, California and Mormon trails and take in the deep western heritage found in the valley and surrounding areas of Wyobraska. Signal Butte is a landmark unlike any other.

Climate Change and the Plight of the Black-tailed Prairie Dog

The Great Plains encompasses the entirety of Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, parts of Colorado, Kansas, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming. Each state offers ecoregions and ecosystems unto themselves and each is unique.

Location of the Horse Creek Treaty

The Great Plains were home to many tribes for countless generations. They lived and hunted all along the prairie, sometimes warred with neighboring tribes. In the mid-1800s, they began witnessing mass migrations of white men through their respective territories.

Mentally Forgotten

Mentally Forgotten is my continuing social awareness project to document the lives of he homeless, and displaced, drawing from personal experiences of having to go through the system and witnessing how broken it is.  In the United States 553,742 people (estimated each night) are homeless.

Conservation of Endangered Species

An endangered species is an animal or plant that's considered at risk of extinction. A species can be listed as endangered at the state, federal, and international level. On the federal level, the endangered species list is managed under the Endangered Species Act.

Coal Ash: Western Nebraska Health Hazard

My efforts to understand why Western Sugar Cooperative is allowed to stock-pile over 500,000 tons of highly toxic and dangerous Coal ash have gone unanswered to date.
