About Me

Why I Choose Photography

I am a casualty investigator by trade, a wildlife photographer by passion. What most people “watch on TV,” I do in real life. Every day. As a casualty investigator, my profession has me delving into some pretty terrible things (injury, death, monetary loss, as well as fraud).

Nature photography is my escape from all that. It is where I disconnect from the bustle of the city and re-connect with the serenity, peace, and purpose of our natural world … which is harmony.

By hiking and traveling “far away from anything human” … appreciating the way our world is supposed to be … immerse myself in exploring every kind of natural terrain, enjoying the fact that each ecosystem offers its own unique treasuresif I look for them.

Nothing pleases me more than capturing thsee many aspects of natural beauty to-camera, sharing my findings with family and friends on FacebookFlickr—not to mention my own photography platform, The Nature Photographer Club™ (under construction).

Besides the years involved in finally producing my own photographic platform, above, I will soon be producing my own video tutorials via my own professional YouTube Channel. (Make sure you subscribe!)

I purchase my own equipment, and I actually use my gear before I give my opinions. I have owned and tested some of the finest photographic gear for going on 2 decades. My forthcoming reviews will carry the weight of nothing but my own, honest experiences.

Aside from making my work available to scientists and others (for both publication and presentation), my images are now also available for purchase as fine art prints, calendars, etc.

This developing website is my effort to transcend my career from “an investigator” to “a photographer,” so please bear with me … and please enjoy my transparency, as this is a HUGE EFFORT  … and is under ongoing construction 😎

Thanks for visiting!
