I became interested in photography in February of 2008, as I was planning the dream trip of my life – a safari in Tanzania. I got my first DSLR for the purpose of documenting the experience and was hooked. Since then I’ve taken more than 20000 photos on six continents. My current work consists almost exclusively of wildlife, nature, and architecture/travel shots. My plan for this year is to venture into people and portrait photography.

I hope some of the immense enjoyment I experienced taking my images passes on to you, the viewer. To everyone who buys my art – a heartfelt “Thank you!” It means a lot!

If you are interested in buying my images as stock, please go to one of the websites below. You could also join them and start selling your own work! I am showing the current gallery sizes, but I add new material almost every week.
