Fantastic Finds

I want my photographs to stir the observer's mind and soul; to cultivate a sense of intrigue and wonder, creativity and exploration, desire and devotion.  I have always felt "as one" with nature and have an awe-filled appreciation and respect of the wonders and miracles of life on Earth. We owe an incredible debt to our planet for having sustained human life for centuries while we abuse and ignore it. I hope that my nature photography will inspire others to love and respect ... and preserve ... nature.

A keen, artistic eye, intense love of the land, and professional (Nikon 35mm and digital) equipment enable me to produce high quality photographs of our fascinating world.

Many people comprehend concepts more readily through visual stimulation rather than words.  Photographs, used alone or as a supplement to written text, compel the reader and expressively complement your subject. 

The links to the right will lead to samples for your viewing pleasure.  Enlarged views are available for selected photos.  Please click on a snapshot to view a larger image.

Soon my photographs will be available for purchase as note cards and as artistic prints suitable for framing.   Commissions accepted.
