My primary source of income is as a professional field trainer for spaniels, photographer and writer. A Boykin spaniel breeder since 1997 explains the number of Boykin pictures included in my portfolio. When I am not training and trialing spaniels I take photos of everything that catches my eye. At retriever hunt tests I photograph working retrievers for other handlers in between running my clients’ dogs.
I take my personal dogs on bird hunting trips where the most joy comes from seeing dogs do the jobs they were bred for. Watching a spaniel quarter the field, find and flush a gamebird is poetry in motion. Training and working a retriever on a blind retrieve from the duck blind is satisfaction multiplied to the nth degree.
I write a regular gundog training column for conservation magazines and self-published a training book for spaniels.
