Me in a nutshell: passionate about photography, especially nature subjects.

In my descriptions, I often refer to “my local botanical garden,” which is South Coast Botanic Garden on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in California, USA. If you are in the area, let me know. I love meeting other photographers!

Published on Blurb: my 60-page photo book, Art in Nature: A Little Book of Nature’s Wonders. The book is available in softcover and hardcover (with upgraded premium paper) as well as ebook format (for iPad, iPhone and iPad Touch) at the Blurb Bookstore. You can preview ALL PAGES (nothing held back) from the link below:

My background is in film photography (including black and white and color darkroom experience), but I had a long period of inactivity until I bought a point-and-shoot digital camera in 2004 and learned to hate “shutter lag.” I moved up to my first DSLR (an Olympus E-300) in 2005 and have been immersed in photography ever since.
