Nature and wildlife photos are one of my favorite subjects. I also like to find themes in nature as in my "Hostile Environment" series from Grand Canyon AZ. I try to find an element of surprise in my work, and therefore am always trying different themes. My work includes travel images, nature and wildlife images, underwater photography, and a select few of those "well you don't see that everyday" once in a lifetime photo themes. I am always looking to improve my work, and explore new ideas and techniques.

Bio

I have been interested in Photography most of my life. My first camera was a Kodak 110 point and shoot which was given to me when I was 11 by my parents. (I think my dad was tired of me always checking out his more expensive camera equipment!) My dad instilled in me a love for photography. So he got me a realtively inexpensive camera to start with and see if I would maintain interest. 30 years, and several camera upgrades later, I am still shooting and learning about photography. When I was 13 my family traveled to Europe for our vacation. I still had my little trusty 110. Back then Stonehenge was not fenced off from the tourists, I took a photo and then wound the camera to the next frame (or so I thought). It turns out I only half way wound to the next frame so when the film was developed I ended up with a double exposure of Stonehenge with pink fluffy clouds superimposed over it. I thought that was COOL!From that little accident I was really hooked on photography and how it impacts a viewer and where we can take our vision. I use both film and digital cameras today. I have a Pentax IQ ZOOM and a Kodak EasyShare DX4530 right now. I will be getting a Sony digital SLR in the near future. I love to shoot nature and animal photos, and have only recently gotten into imaging software which I enjoy as well. But to me there is something very satisfying in capturing your unique vision and being able to share it with others, and to see where their creative vision takes them as well.
