It has not always been photography.
I had the good fortune of having two careers. I spent the majority of my adult life flying jet aircraft for a national airline, and then serving as a public servant in the fire service, spending twenty-six plus years as a fire chief.
It wasn’t until I retired that I realized the camera my wife had given me would be the impetus for my next career. I was fortunate enough to be accepted into the Rocky Mountain School of Photography (RMSP) and after six months of intense study, I returned home to establish myself as a professional photographer. I’ve since returned to RMSP to serve as an assistant instructor for their summer school intensives.
I thoroughly enjoy the art as well as the science of photography. I can best be described as a wildlife photographer, one who specializes in the genre of capturing wildlife in their natural environment. Wildlife photography is my passion.
I’m fulfilled when capturing sights and experiences from the secret world of wild animals who share our world, and I will seek and shoot them in the natural landscapes in which they live. For me, there is nothing more fulfilling than capturing an image of a wild animal in their natural environment.
Feel free to contact me with questions regarding images here that peak your interest. And don’t forget, if you have a specific photographic need, we can talk about that as well.
