The waterfalls of Olympic National Park in western Washington state are breathtaking. Brett spent three weeks photographing the falls and forests of the region, while searching for an abstract view of the landscape. The result is Whisper, a whimsical image of lush vegetation and the water source that supplies them with life.
Brett captured Sacred Falls on film in early autumn in the hills of North Carolina. This beautiful waterfall is relatively quiet during the late summer and early fall which gives it a tranquil feeling surrounded by golden leaves and the debris left over from the floods earlier in the springtime. “When I came upon this waterfall I was instantly captivated by it’s setting” recalls Brett. “It was framed on both sides with steep slopes and fallen leaves which gave peace to the chaos of the debris pool below.”
Brett had traveled endlessly for months before he arrived at this magical lake on the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe on a summer evening. Here he found peace and for the first moment in some time was able to reflect on his journey that brought him here. He had explored 25 states, driven 14,000 miles, and hiked endless trails in search of natural beauty and perfect light. It was this calm… found right here… at this moment… that he had been looking for. It reminded him of what summer felt like as a child. There was an innocence about this place. As if time, although fleeting, seemed to stand still.
While hiking the rim of Bryce Canyon in southern Utah, Brett came upon this vista full of variety and color. “I immediately knew that this was a shot.” recalls Brett. “I came back to this outcropping several mornings in a row, just hoping for a perfect sunrise.” Desert Sun showcases the contrast of sandstone and conifer trees that make up Bryce Canyon National Park. Brett first visited the park as an young child and has returned many time since, drawn to it’s great hiking and awe-inspiring landscapes.
