I'm a fine art nature photographer who was born and raised in central New York. I enjoy exploring the beautiful natural areas that surround me, and like spending most of my time outdoors. My passion for the outdoors has led me to take many photos of wild animals, pets, nature and scenery, as well as a variety of other subjects. My interest in all living things challenges me to capture stunning memorable images. I feel most at home when I'm close to nature. I have spent countless hours in the woods observing and learning about plants and animals. Country living on eight acres in a beautiful part of New York State gives me the perfect opportunity to photograph nature as I interpret it. I photograph nature because it brings me joy and understanding. I love the adventure of meeting new people, discovering new plants and animals, and the educational opportunities it brings. I experience a complete loss of worry and sense of time while I quietly walk through the woods and peacefully observe all living things around me. I'm a patient photographer and passionate animal lover, learning to enhance my surroundings to help maintain the balance of nature.My fine art prints are held in public and private collections throughout the world. There are hundreds of photos and artworks to choose from in my on-line collection. All of my fine art prints can be purchased ready-to-hang in a variety of sizes and mediums.
