“My wife introduced me to nature photography during our early dating years. My passion for wildlife photography itself was truly born during an African safari in Botswana. Since then, I have been hungry for learning more about all aspects of photography. I have watched my work flourish into creations that take me back to those encounters in all the vividness of their emotions. Bringing that eye-to-eye and intimate interaction with the wildlife subjects is what I seek in my work. I aim to present my subjects in a non-clustered environment where the viewer can only be captivated by the animal. Demonstrating the beauty and intimacy one may have with nature will hopefully lead and encourage people to preserve and protect nature, our precious home.”
