My focus has changed since leaving my career as a photojournalist to shooting Nature, Wildlife and Landscape photography. Now I try capturing beautiful and unique images of birds, elk, deer, mountains, swamps, hills and valleys, sunrises and sunsets.
Landscape and Wildlife photography are my true passions. I love the outdoors, I love the woods and all the beauty Mother Nature has offered us to enjoy. The colors, the sounds and the smell of dry fallen leaves in the woods are what draw me out into the world, searching for images that might uniquely capture the beauty. Whether it's hiking in the mountains or sloshing through Florida swamps, I see beautiful images all around me just waiting to be snatched by my camera's lens.
Photography has always been my passion and a fulfilling part of my life. Capturing moments in time when the elements line up into a perfect composition - that's my goal. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy making it.
