During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    Don’t forget to enter this image in the SEPTEMBER Features Challenge.

  • Thank you for the feature and the challenge invitation (will do!)
    p.s. I feel like a kindred photography spirit… I too am self-taught, was a die-hard film shooter until my first DSLR, also a Canon Rebel in 2004, am now using a Canon 40D, EF 100-400mm F/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens. And your equipment — as your work — give me new goals to shoot for!
