Hey, There! 

I'm Markus- a daring landscape, a commercial and an editorial photographer living in Ouray, Colorado; the Switzerland of America. My love for all things mountains and the western lifestyle inspires my visual storytelling to share unique images with the world. When I'm not engaged in photography (hardly ever), you can find me behind the eightball with my wife's "honey-do" list.

My Vision

To inspire people to connect with their inner adventurer to seek out nature’s wild places and create experiences that make life fulfilling.

I believe photography is a process

I shoot with a purpose

I love collaboration
