Looking through the lens is a remarkable way to see life. My gallery is filled with portraits that are the result of looking at the natural world and my surroundings with the purpose of taking its portrait to study and enjoy and savor.
A chance encounter with a ruby-throated hummingbird taught me the joys of capturing a remarkable moment with a camera, that I can stop time and freeze the experience to relive and enjoy time and again. From that moment on, he has been my muse as photography has filled my happy life with the love and awe for the nature and beauty that surrounds me.
