My dad loved photography and was my first teacher. He introduced me to his old Canon SLR and I was hooked. Later, as the "trip historian" taking snaps of friends, family and places I learned how elusive it can be to capture the essence of a scene. A challenge that continues to inspire me.

Photography makes me look more closely at the world.  The details, textures, colors, and patterns that are everywhere. The fleeting nature of light that changes from one moment to the next. The thrill of getting a privileged glimpse of the animal kingdom. The diversity of people, architecture and culture.

Brenda, my wife and partner in all things, and I feel very grateful for the people we've met and the places we've experienced. We sincerely hope you enjoy the images we have created along the way.
