 About me

I've always been fascinated by photography, and the ability to capture a split-second in time that will never be exactly the same again. It's like my brain is wired to see things through a frame, analyzing the potential of a different angle in the strangest places, always searching for that perfect shot.  I've been blessed to be able to travel around the world and witness some amazing places, most in my element behind a lens, capturing images from a unique perspective. 

In the last 5 years my focus has shifted to ecology and promoting a greater environmental awareness. “Climate change” is a phrase often used, but it can be a faceless threat, easily ignored.  I want to show people exactly how much we have to lose, these magic, natural wonders we need to strive to protect.  Many of the places I choose to travel to and shoot are in a constant state of change, and while some are currently protected, the threat against our national parks, coastlines, forests, and waterways is constant.

With that in mind, I feel a positive outlook is a more effective way of raising awareness than a doom and gloom approach.  I want to celebrate all that nature and this amazing planet has to offer, and share my passion and travels through my images.
