Ansel has always enjoyed the mountain wilderness and welcomed planned and unplanned adventures. He enjoys the challenge of translating a story he sees into a frame that can tell the story on its own. He lives, breathes and takes active part in a variety of outdoor activities. Ansel has trekked through wild and remote parts of Western Australia, flown from summits of snowy peaks, headed into January storms on purpose, navigated through backcountry Yosemite, explored expansive mountains and valleys in Alaska, among other adventures.
Ansel's main focus is on landscape impressions but he likes to dabble in other categories. Skier, hockey player, wildland firefighter, and aspiring linguist.

“To the complaint, 'There are no people in these photographs,' I respond, There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.”
