His photographs have been published widely in magazines and books.

The recently added Spearheads Terrain Gallery is an online resource that illustrates the ski touring terrain in the Spearhead and Fitzsimmons Ranges behind Whistler and Blackcomb ski resorts in Garibaldi Park. It is meant to be used with Backcountry Whistler.
