About: I am a nature photographer and have been professionally photographing for over a decade. I think I have the coolest job on the planet. Okay, maybe the folks up circling the planet in the space station have a pretty cool job too, but I think mine ranks right up there. I am really fortunate to get to do what I do. I love it and wouldn’t trade it for anything else. I am one of the lucky few who have found exactly what they were meant to do, nature photography is that thing for me.

My passion for nature photography started while taking bike rides with my son when he was a baby. If you have taken one of my workshops, you’ve probably heard the story. If you haven’t, next time you run into me buy me a beer and I’ll tell you all about it. I like hoppy micro brews. A good IPA is probably the universe’s way of telling me “Everything is gonna be alright.” I am also really fortunate that it is a family business. My wife, Nicole, and son, Adam, mean everything to me and that they get to share in this crazy adventure with me makes it all that much sweeter.

I’m originally from Maryland and grew up on a small farm near the mountains. I worked my way through high school at the local parks and zoos, and eventually graduated from the University of Maryland, Go Terps! Extra points if you can guess my field of study. Hint: It was definitely not photography.

I am a product of the digital age. I’ve never smelled darkroom chemicals or gotten misty eyed reminiscing over Velvia slides on a light table. Heck, for the first few years of my photography endeavors I thought Velvia was a brand of processed cheese… Although I never dabbled with a traditional SLR, I have a deep respect for those photographers who paved the way before me and often look to them for inspiration. For me, I view being “born” in the digital age as a door that has opened up the world of photography to a broader audience. It’s an exciting time to be a photographer. I am inspired by all the new technology and the extremely cool things that can be done with it to capture creative visions. Every day we are pushing the boundaries of what we thought were possible with a camera.

I like sunsets and long walks on the beach…while carrying about 40 pounds of camera gear. I won’t talk religion or politics with you. I’ve found the best way for exploring “the meaning of life” is grabbing my camera and wading through a swamp. In my point of view, this has an amazing ability to put everything neatly into perspective!
