Welcome to my passion, the outdoors of the Intermountain West. When I say the outdoors my primary focus is the wonderful wild creatures and fascinating scenery of this amazing area. It is my intent to bring the fresh air, the solitude and the beauty of this amazing area to you through my images. The amazing outdoor diversity of the Intermountain West presents an unending choice of unique gallery themes and images.
I am a Photographer first, a Naturalist second, and a advocate for wild creatures, the ecology of ecosystems in which they live, against animal cruelty and the continuing education of both public sector and those individuals who also want to have a voice protecting native species and wild lands we still have, such precious jewels.
I have to thank my father and grandfather for instilling in me a love for the outdoors and wild places, for giving me this world.
The photographer in me is self-taught, the naturalist part comes from degrees in Zoology and Entomology and the heritage left from family.
I remember many years ago borrowing a Rollie from a friend of me who was a professional photographer. I had fun and thought my images were the greatest.
During my work life there just wasn’t time to devote the photography. My learning curve has been steep, still continuing to go up.
Photography is now a passion, my life style has changed as a result.
