Full time nature photographer involved in the education of others interested in photography. My father started me on my way with a camera as a Christmas gift at age 9. I have been many things but photography is the one thing that I have never stopped enjoying. Nature, specifically birds are my passion and since retirement I have devoted most of my time in developing classes and presentations for helping people learn the basics and hone their skills. I spend a great deal of time in the field and working with local clubs and groups to promote nature photography. I also have a desire to share my experience with others through travel opportunities and photography tours which I lead whenever possible.
