My name is Burket Kniveton. I am a documentary photographer based in the Flathead Valley, MT. I am captivated by the power of photography. I believe that a single photograph has the potential to convey emotion, truth, and personal stories.

I love capturing images that tell unique visual stories

My camera is a tool that allows me to explore, share experiences, and develop intimate understanding.

Things I love:

  • Simplicity
  • Efficiency
  • The present moment
  • Wild landscapes
  • Mountain culture
  • Travel

I am the staff photographer at RIDGE Mountain Academy in Whitefish, MT., where I coach backcountry snowboarding, life skills, trail running, and photography.  You may have seen my images published in magazines, online, or hung on a friend's wall.

That's my story, what's yours?
