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.

  • Many Thanks! This posed challenges for me. The least of which was running down Memorial Drive with tripod mounted camera in order to catch this before the moon slipped behind buildings! Gotta love those photography-induced workouts. ;-)
