I have been captivated by nature and wildlife for as long as I can remember. I find a tremendous amount of inspiration and contentment from wild places and the animals that inhabit them. I began photography as a means to capture some of the beauty I’ve been fortunate enough to experience. My hope is that you’re able to share some of that beauty and inspiration through the images I’ve captured.
I believe a great image consists of witnessing an amazing moment in nature, executing artistic composition, and capturing light and animal behavior. I strive to present original images and avoid the typical scenes taken repeatedly by others which are neither rare or difficult to photograph. I hope you can appreciate the uniqueness and authenticity of the images displayed in my gallery. I remain true to the original scene as a photographic artist and minimize the impact of the digital artistry available today.
I am passionate about wilderness and the need to preserve it. Our history is riddled with so many examples of greed winning out over wilderness and this trend continues today. Respect for wildlife and conservation of resources is scarce in our society and I think this needs to change. We need to leave the earth in better shape than we found it for future generations.
I hope you will join me in actively conserving resources and our remaining wild places. Please help make these images symbols an amazing conservation legacy. Edward Abbey says it best:
“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit….”
I have owned my own galleries for over 12 years and have thoroughly enjoyed the journey. I’m thankful for all the support I have received. I truly enjoy the people I’m able to meet and the friendships that have developed. I look forward to sharing nature with you!
