Personal History: Jeff was born in Massachussetts and lived 6 miles from Henry David Thoreau's Walden Pond. He developed a deep appreciation for nature exploring nearby woods and waterways, and grew up hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and snorkeling the New England coast from Cape Cod to Maine. Upon moving to California in the 1970s Jeff was walking in the shadow of the Range of Light, in the footsteps of John Muir and Ansel Adams. He took up backpacking and 35mm photography in 1974.
Currently, Jeff is a landscape and nature photographer in Galen Rowell's beloved Eastern Sierra. He leads landscape photography workshops in some of the planet's most exotic landscapes. Jeff is also currently researching and writing a guidebook to California's most stunning landscape photography locations, to be published in early 2012 in Laurent Martres' excellent PhotoTripUSA series.
