I am a photographer, writer, all around
naturalist and lover of nature. As a young
child growing up in rural Upstate New
York, I
quickly turned to the seemingly endless
expanse of forest surrounding my house
to
explore and fulfill my urge to be outdoors.
Walking through thick old growth hemlock
forests with the strong scent of pine
permeating the air, I began to form a
strong
sense of appreciation and amazement for
all
things natural. This appreciation has
stayed,
and even grown with me, my entire life.
Wanting to share the beauty of nature with
others, I dove into photography and have
not looked back since. As a medium,
photography allows me to create art in my
own way by depicting nature as I see it
through the use of different lenses,
shutter
speeds, apertures, and composition. I
strive
to keep my final image as close to what I
saw and felt in person as possible, and as
such, with the exception of cropping,
minor
color work, and minor contrast work I
generally avoid altering my photographs
with a heavy hand. I have been published
in
many major magazines such as Birder's
World, Delaware Beach Life Magazine,
and
Nature's Best Student Edition. I also sell
prints and rights for other editorial usage
quite frequently. Now living in northern
Virginia, I get out to photograph, kayak,
mountain bike, backpack, or just take a
hike
as frequently as I can.
