I am a nature photographer and though I do some landscape photography, I prefer macro photography.

My photography balances the artistic quality of a pleasing composition with the technical aspect of applying the right settings to the camera. My photographs are of places I have visited and reflect my eye for detail and balance. They are directly influenced by the nature photography of my grandfather, Francis Almstead.

For the past 20 years I has pursued photography as a hobby. A fully manual camera from my grandmother allowed my to begin to explore photography. In graduate school I learned to develop black and white film for use in scientific research, which stimulated me to pursue my hobby further.

Today I use a Canon EOS 20D digital SLR. Although the digital technology has changed many aspects of photography, the vision, composition and mechanics of the fully manual camera still apply. My prints are made on an Epson R2400 printer.

I grew up in Hatboro, PA graduating from Hatboro-Horsham High School in 1986. I have an undergraduate degree is from Westminster College. I earned a PhD in Neuroscience from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio in 1997. I performed postdoctoral research at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, Tennessee. Currently, I am a professor of biology at Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio.
