I have been passionate about photography from a very young age. Before I chose it as my second career, my hobby had been taking photographs in my home town and over the years as my passion has grown as I traveled around the world and taken photographs on all seven continents. My work has also been featured in gallery exhibitions, Fodor's travel guides, and in coffee table books on travel and photography. My extensive experience as a photographer traveling to other countries has taught me that beauty is everywhere, but that many places are not protecting the environment nor the animals that live there. It is my belief that we must be responsible stewards of the earth— and all the wonders it holds. Because I have been witness to the destruction and exploitation of cultures and wildlife throughout the world, my mission to document all of the world's wonders on camera is what drives my passion.
My passion for photography and documenting the cultures, animals, and landscapes I've encountered during my travels have inspired me to write about my adventures as well. For me, combining my photography and the written word into travel and adventure books seems a natural fit. I have written several "armchair adventure" books featuring some of cultures I've visited and animals I've encountered over the years. My books unite my passion for travel and photography with my desire to draw attention to fast-disappearing cultures, animals, and environments from around the world. I love creating coffee table quality picture books that invite and inspire the reader.
WHAT SETS me APART
I am a landscape and nature photographer and author. I always strive to capture wildlife in their natural habitat and I feel that is what sets me apart from other photographers. For me, it is not just about the photograph, but about the experience of capturing a moment in time as well as documenting behavior and cultures that are quickly disappearing from our earth. In my travels throughout the world, I have photographed some very amazing places, people, and wildlife, as well as long forgotten cultures.
