For the love of nature . . . and photography . . .
Primarily a nature and aviation photographer based in the midwest, my images grace the websites and pages of many birding guides and blogs as well as private gallery collections. Despite the awards and accolades, I garner the most satisfaction by sharing my love of the art through personalized training sessions, on location instructional shoots and writing about various photographic subjects.
Learning and Exploration
Photography is a life-long learning experience of the best kind, regardless of your skill level. I learn or discover something new every time I pick up the camera - whether I'm alone, giving a clinic or providing a 1on1 session. The art of photography provides for endless lessons and experience - well beyond the technical aspects of today's equipment and software.
