My photography was born from my appreciation of all things wild and by an inherent quest to explore the natural world around me. I can’t imagine doing anything else that would provide the satisfaction I receive from sharing my work with others, opening windows that help enrich their lives and appreciation for the intrinsic values of wild things and wild places. Students often ask me what the “perfect picture” is and that is simple: The perfect picture is the one that drives you to make another. Each image should be viewed as a stepping stone to the next. That is the philosophy that drives my creative vision.
