Photography is both art and a tool. It has the ability to inspire and educate, to communicate in ways that transcend the limitations of language, age, race, or class. Photographs can show people the world around them through new eyes, creating an awareness of our social and physical environment and fostering a connection with nature. It is through photography that we can teach others about environmental issues, social injustices, and the incredible, diverse beauty of our planet; this is a tool that can help to develop responsible and informed world citizens who act as stewards for nature and humanity. My goal is not to simply create stunning photographs, but to give them a voice and a purpose, to make them work towards a better planet, and to make sure the stories they tell are heard.
I've added a new page to the website featuring my photography workshops, guided tours, private instruction, speaking engagements, and more. If you'd like to see my current schedule, join me on one of my trips, or book me for an upcoming event, please visit my Workshops and Events
page to learn more.
Exciting news! In February I'll be headed to Nepal to scout for future photography workshops and tours. This new trip, combined with traveling to Ecuador in January to do some mountaineering, and trips to New York, Florida, the southeastern USA, Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia in March through May are making for a travel filled first half of the new year. I'm pumped!
I'm pleased to announce that I will be co-leading a workshop and tour at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge this May with NatureScapes.Net co-founder and publisher, Greg Downing. Chincoteague is one of my favorite locations and easily THE place that helped me fall in love with nature photography, so I'm very excited to be able to introduce a new group of photographers to the refuge.

I've got a new method to the madness on this website and have begun to adapt my current layout in preparation of hosting a few new pages and features. Recent changes include new slideshow on the homepage and new portfolio galleries in the "Photography" section of the site. I'm also happy to announce that I'll be leading a workshop at Acadia National Park this fall as part of the NANPA Regional Event there in October. Announcements such as this one often make it to my Facebook page and other social media outlets, so be sure to like me on Facebook
