About Tad

The mountains have been a part of my life for almost as long as I can remember. At first I’d find myself running around the western Sierra barefoot with a fly rod in hand, but gradually I steered my attention to the vertical and technical world of climbing and mountaineering as a vehicle to experience the wonders of the natural world. I like pre-dawn starts, cracked cuticles, unplanned bivies, zinc stained smiles and summit sunsets. For most of the last decade I've been chasing adventure from the windswept Pampas of Patagonia to the lung-busting high country of the Himalaya.

I work as a Mountain Guide specializing in high-end alpine terrain and full-scale, remote expeditions.

As an artist I work within the field of adventure & mountain photography, and storytelling. I have worked with a number of brands (Patagonia, Ferrino, Redbull, etc...) and publications (National Geographic, Outside Magazine, Alpinist, etc...) within the outdoor industry.

I specialize in capturing lines & light, moments & emotions, and shapes & shadows. As a photographer I am a preservationist, always striving to tell a story in stills. A photo is something you look at, art is something that captivates you, something you feel:-)

Please browse my galleries and make sure to check out my PRINT SHOP for authentic, inspiring mountain images that define the human experience and evoke the ineffable emotions that define nature and the art of adventure.
