My mission is to photographically capture fleeting wildlife and bird behaviors in their natural environments (i.e., none are captive in zoos, none have been baited or lured) with the goal of stirring emotion, inspiring passion and caring, and raising awareness about the importance of preserving the beauty and fragility of this planet. I was born and raised in western Canada, but now I live in Oregon, United States. I am an aspiring photographer of wildlife and have been fortunate to photograph iconic and charismatic species in several wonderful locations around the world, including Botswana, Canada, India, Kenya, Namibia, South Africa, and several places throughout the United States (e.g., Alaska, Florida, Oregon). Although I have loved every location I have visited, the Okavango Delta in Botswana is probably my favorite place on the planet. In addition to being an avid wildlife photographer and traveler, I am also a Professor of natural resources at Oregon State University, and Editor of the scientific journal “Human Dimensions of Wildlife.” I earned my BA and MA degrees in geography and environmental studies from the University of Victoria in Canada, and my PhD in natural resources from Colorado State University in Colorado, United States. I have a deep passion for the environment and its preservation. I am also dedicated to educating people about these issues through my teaching and research at the university, as well as through my photography.
