Artistís Statement
My roots in photography reach back to a Kodak 110 film camera that I used in grade school. While my equipment has evolved over time, the underlying mission has remained: to observe, preserve, and share glimpses of our spectacular natural surroundings.

I was fortunate to grow up in the Kansas where I learned to love wide open spaces. The often subtle beauty and seasonal changes of the prairie provided me with endless photography opportunities and allowed me to develop a strong appreciation for natureís soul-healing grandeur. My deepest peace comes when I'm immersed in nature...whether that is walking through waist-high prairie grasses, wading in tanin-stained swamps, or scrambling over treeline in the mountains.

My journeys have introduced me to a diverse and complex world, and triggered a quest to understand and protect unique ecosystems and their inhabitants. I strive to capture compelling images as a way to share natureís beauty with others. May there always be natural scenery and wildlife with the power to take our breath away.
