My eye where set on the dandelion yellow film can with the red crew-top filled with coins. I stretch my arm as far as it could go with no luck, it’s just beyond my fingertips. Completely focus I must figure out how to move the dead weight of my body forward. After a series of wiggles and arms tucked under my torso I am able to push forward just enough to grasp my goal of shaking the old Kodak 35mm film can to creating a calamity only my father could take joy in. To say my father inspired me to be a photographer is an understand statement. He ingrained photography into who I am from the time I was able to scoot across the floor. He always kept me reaching. Reaching for what was next, a higher level or a new project.

I started working professionally when I was a teenager, it was the age of film and the local camera store. I was being hired to take my high school class mate’s senior portraits. As the years rolled on I was hired into a newspaper becoming the sol photographer for five editors and one publisher. I became their most awarded photographer, a title I still hold today. As my life moved forward I returned to portrait and commercial work until my passion for the great outdoors took over.

Today I create images that will make a difference in our precious and fragile environment. Photographing the beautiful landscape and wildlife before they are gone. Working with researcher to document new finding with high quality photographic evidence to support their hypotheses. Inspiring people to get back outside, to find new gratitude for our lands. Today I find myself continuing to reach for the next level and project.
