I have a passion for nature photography and have always chosen to photograph those subjects that I find personally inspiring and beautiful. Sometimes I find those subjects near to home, but I also love traveling to far away destinations to explore the natural world with my cameras and lenses.

Bio

I've been an avid nature photographer for over twenty years. I have a love of nature, traveling to beautiful places and documenting the natural world through my lenses and cameras.

My goal in photographing a nature subject is to translate my vision and feeling for it onto film. I try to capture the essence of my subject. I enjoy photographing nature looking for the edges of light early and late in the day. I hope my images sometimes exhibit a painterly quality. My photography allows me to slow down mentally, live in the present moment, and see the nuances and details of nature about me. I believe being in the field, often times, allows me to experience my best, my highest self.

My images have appeared in a variety of publications. I enjoy teaching nature photography classes at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts.
