Wildlife, Nature, & Conservation Photographer.
Sharing the importance of wildlife, nature, & conservation for a sustainable world.
I have been a photographer since high school when I started out with a film-based Olympus OM-3 camera learning to shoot with just a 50mm lens on black-and white film. My high-school years were spent overseas in Singapore (SouthEast Asia), where I traveled throughout Asia photographing unique places, cultures, and environments. Camera technology has changed a lot since then, but learning to photograph in those early years instilled in me patience to get the shots that convey the right message to my audience.
Today my role as a geographer and photographer allows me to take a photojournalistic approach to studying changes to eco-systems and critical habitats. Through scientifically understanding changes occurring in our natural environment, and photographing those environments, I seek to share their importance and value with others so that we might work towards a more sustainable future.
My photography draws me to areas that are interesting and still relatively natural places. Some even in close proximity to urban areas that most don't know still exist. But even in more rural and remote areas I see evidence of the 'human impact' on our environment. From trash and plastic in waterways, to development in areas once natural and peaceful, they are all reminders that a sustainable future is not a straight line of continued ever steady growth and development.
I also serve as a Board Member for Bayou Land Conservancy and am a member of their Ambassador Program and the Spring Creek Nature Trail Stewardship Program. Land trusts and conservation organizations like these are instrumental in helping to build a sustainable future by preserving our natural areas for current and future generations to enjoy. When people ask me what they can do, the answer is simple: Just get involved and lend your time, and if you are so inclined and have the financial means, please donate to organizations that are on the front lines of preserving the only planet we have to live on, Planet Earth.
