Artist Statement

I learned the love of travel at a young age and was given my first camera when I was 10. Ever since I’ve traveled the United States and the world making photos.

Photos give me a feeling of the experience that I want to share with others. What was it like swimming with a 10-day old humpback when his mother swam up below him and nudged him towards me? I can share that with my photos. Photography is my excuse to travel the world to capture new experiences. Be it watching a family of lions or sitting and enjoying a sunset or up all night shooting the Milky Way, it’s all experiences that help me enjoy nature and our wonderful world.

Sometimes a lot of work goes into planning the shot and sometimes everything collides at once and it just happens. That is what I love about nature photography.

I often see things as a photo. Snapshots in my mind of my life through travel. I try to minimally edit my photos for a realistic lookback at my experiences. Photography for me is about a feeling, how to connect with the environment on a deep level.

I love it when I can look back at a photo and see little details I didn’t notice at the time.
