I am a lover of nature, an avid hiker and traveler, a geologist by profession, and an amateur photographer. My passion for photography began many years ago, when my father gave me an already old and beaten-up Leica rangefinder. My photographic style focuses on color and contrast, but always trying to preserve the image as close as possible to my recollection of the original. I try to enhance while staying within reality. Anything in the natural world - landscapes, animals, flowers, plants - is fair game for my lens, but I am also happy photographing cityscapes, night scenes, buildings, and other human structures. If I am having fun shooting and processing I will go for it!
