I'm a photographer with a passion for wildlife, landscape and travel photography. Over the past ten years I have been fortunate to be able to travel to some of the world's most beautiful, wild and interesting places. I have met a lot of interesting folks in my travels. Photography has provided a focus and an intensity of experience that I find stimulating and motivating. I am based in southwest Florida, where the weather is great and there are some of the world's best bird photography locations.

New web site going up

Published April 23rd, 2012

I have redirected my url to a new website hosted at Zenfolio. My current site is hosted on GoDaddy and the service is ok, but the site was developed in iWeb, which is now an unsupported Apple product. After searching a bit, I decided Zenfolio will do a great job. There is a killer slide show on the front page, a good Jeffry Friedl plug-in to integrate with the publish module of Lightroom 4, a flexible folder structure that also allows collections, a built in blog, the ability to sell prints and other novelties and, finally, a good search engine optimization capability.

I also found a good resource to help with some of the less obvious parts of the site building process, Shari Warren at She has been very helpful and her rates are reasonable. When complete, the site will look like a custom built site.

I will be creating content and updating over the next few weeks.

I appreciate any comments or criticism if you happen to visit.

Polar Bears

Published October 14th, 2011

Posted a few Polar Bear photos from Churchill last year. In a few weeks I will be going back to the Churchill area, but staying in the remote Seal River Lodge. My goal is to get more images of bears but from a ground level perspective. Should be exciting, and, I suppose, very cold.
