I have traveled around the country over the years exploring the wilderness in the mountains, deserts, islands and swamps. Throughout those journeys, I have always had a camera in hand to document and share the love I have for nature. My photography represents my point of view through the lens, from the beauty of sunsets and coastal landscapes, to the sublime beauty of its tiniest creatures. I hope that in sharing my photographs that I will open people’s eyes to the beauty of nature in all its forms and be compelled to protect it for all times
Photography, to me, is less of a technical process but rather an extension of the eye. Whether with camera or without, each day is an exploration of our natural wonders. I have been inspired in recent years through macrophotography which has exposed me to the small wonders that exist right beneath my feet and just beyond my range of vision. I find it inspirational that the photos inspire one to discuss the marvels of nature and learn about itsflora and fauna as much as the technical skills of macrophotography.
World famous artist Walter Anderson who lived in Ocean Springs explored its isolated barrier islands, bayous and swamps and its plethora of wildlife. He was a great influence on how I see nature and its wonders. Like Walter Anderson, I see the world through a child’s eyes, marveling in all its wonders as if for the first time. It is my hope that my photography encourages others to explore their natural world, whether it be in their backyard or at the wonders of the Grand Canyon.
