I was first captivated by photography in my 20’s. I developed my overall skills and an eye for composition through my numerous outdoor adventures, a degree in art, and many hours developing and printing black and white film in the dark room. When digital photography became available it brought a new freedom. Freedom from chemicals and the restriction of how many pictures were on your roll of film and freedom to explore and expand my skills. I have always been drawn to nature as a place of adventure, tranquility and beauty. Animals with their interactions and reactions to each other, and to humans, have always fascinated me. While wildlife, and landscapes are my main focus, I’m always ready for the visual opportunities that present themselves everyday. Through my photography I look to capture the essence of the moment, exceptional light, and the personality of the subject.
