“However 'civilized,' however much brought up in an artificially contrived environment, we all seem to have an innate longing for primitive simplicity, close to the natural state of living."

Nature and wildlife photography are my primary interests, especially birds. Although colorful shapes and interesting textures in man-made environments draw my eye, solitude in the outdoors rewards me in ways the city never will.

My goal is to take you to places and show you things you haven't seen. My hope is that you’ll share my appreciation for wild things in wild places, and that you’ll help preserve and protect them.

If you wonder why I’ve included buildings and old aircraft and people you’ve never met, it’s because I also hope you’ll share my appreciation for history and good friends, and for beauty wherever we find it.

My Background
My real job involves industrial advertising. Photography has always played an important role in my work – buying it, directing it, using it – and I owe a large debt of gratitude to the talented professional photographers from whom I have learned so much during my 35-year advertising career.
