BIO

I have been interested in wildlife and the outdoors all my life. When I was in the third grade I began feeding birds outside my bedroom window so I could observe them up close. In college I took a course in wildlife biology and liked it so much I almost changed career paths. Ultimately, however, I went to law school and became a lawyer. While I never regretted the choice I made, there were times when I wondered what my life would have been like if I had taken that other path.

Shortly after law school I became interested in photography and it didn't take long before I found myself concentrating on photographing wildlife. I bought the best telephoto lenses I could afford and began traveling to places like the Florida Everglades and Yellowstone National Park to photograph birds and mammals.

In early 2005 I became very interested in digital photography and the quality of images possible with this technology. By 2006 I found I was enjoying nature photography much more than I had in my film days and more than I was enjoying the practice of law. I decided then to retire and pursue photography full time.

To me, all the wild things are beautiful. My best photographic moments trigger an emotional response in me. It is my hope that those viewing my images will have a similar response.
