I picked up my dad’s 35mm film camera when I was 16 and I never looked back.

When I was a kid I found photography to be incredibly enjoyable, but I never really considered it to be a career option.  It seemed too fun and too easy to be considered a ‘proper’ career.  I thought of a job as something that should be serious and difficult, something that you do to earn a decent income to pay for the life that you live when you’re not working.

As a teenager, I was always interested in playing football but a recurring thumb injury dashed my sporting dreams. Still wanting to be near the game led me to becoming the team photographer for our high school’s Friday night games. This also meant that I spent many a night and weekend in the darkroom push-developing my black-and-white film to somehow get usable photographs under poorly lit stadium lighting. But it was that first time seeing (under that red-orange safelight) an image slowly appear on an 8x10 sheet of white paper in the developer tray that amazed me, instantly hooked me on the magic of photography and lead me to my life’s work.

My introduction to photography began on my honeymoon 40 years ago in Hawaii.  My brother loaned me his 35mm film camera to capture landscapes in Hawaii, and I was hooked.  Jacques Cousteau’s underwater films were a great influence on my early career that began with underwater photography. Over the years my interest in the outdoors has grown much broader and I’m thrilled with all the great outdoors has to film and explore.  It’s a tremendous blessing to make a good living as a full time nature/wildlife photographer for the last 25 years.
