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.

My dad loved photography and was my first teacher. Later, as the "trip historian" taking snaps of friends, family and places I learned how hard it is to capture the essence of a moment or place. It is a challenge that inspires me still.

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