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.

    very rich in colour, very nicely done…

  • Very much appreciate getting your thoughts as I wasn’t sure if it would come across “over the top.” But then I remembered the natural color and expanse of that desert and felt it was about right. ;-) Thank you John! …Sylvia
