Welcome to my blog of my moments in nature. I am doing this blog to give a more in depth stories behind my photography and trips for photography.
It all started in 2005 with a point & shoot camera that I purchased for out of state job training. I used this camera at a local park where I spent my free time after work. When I got back home I found myself purchasing my first digital DSLR. As I started out I mainly concentrated on the parks that are in my own backyard, but soon started to expand my travels to various regions of Ohio and out of state. My mild start has now developed into a true passion and obsession. When out in the field, I attempt to portray a story with my photography, capturing the pure essence of the moment. That is what I find most rewarding when I am able to capture that special and unique moment in nature and share it with others. I have been fortunate to sell many of my images through Trail Mix Peninsula, as well as other personal sales. That is which the biggest compliment that I could receive.
I am a Group Coordinator for NPEG (National Photographers Enthusiasts Group) which is based out of Brunswick Ohio in which I create group shoots for NPEG members. I have given several photography talks for various local photography groups as well as special programs such as North Chagrin Reservation during their Nature Photography Weekend, the 2014 graduating class of Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalists, and Fireside Lecture series at the Holden Arboretum. I have also been published in various publications and currently have two murals on display at REI in Columbus Ohio. I am a self-taught wildlife photographer that resides in Northeast Ohio.
My photos are available for purchase as prints and if you are interested in a speaking engagement please contact me.
