介紹:I'm primarily a nature photographer, and picked up my first camera 9 years ago. My interest began around the same time digital photography was in its infancy, starting with a 3MP Fuji digital point & shoot camera. I still remember the excitement I experienced with my first macro when viewed large on the screen. It opened my eyes to the natural world, and I've never been the same.

Learning the necessary skills from the internet, photo sharing sites, and daily shooting, my art and appreciation of nature grew quickly. Mary and I live on 6 acres of Central Texas Hill Country in its natural state, and I do much of my photography right here on our land. We also live on the "Central Flyway" a major migratory route for countless numbers of birds.

I will tell anyone who's a beginner that it's well worth your money, time, and effort. And the connection you make with nature is priceless..Since I started just 9 short years ago I've been published in Nature's Best Photography, Texas Parks & Wildlife, National Wildlife, Better Holmes & Gardens, Nature's Garden, Birds & Blooms, Astronomy Magazine and many others. My first major national publication was a winning image in National Wildlife's Photo Contest in 2006. Editor's Pick Award 2009 winner at Nature
Photographers Network. Also a winner in Nature's Best Magazine's Backyards Contest in 2009. I won the Nature Conservancy's Grand Prize in 2009, their 2010 calendar cover shot. Birds & Blooms Grand Prize winner for 2011. Texas Parks & Wildlife Contest winner for 2011. One of my images was used early this year (2011) for a book cover shot, my first.
Another first was a PBS interview in 2009, which aired later that year. I regularly contribute images to the National Wildlife Federation for use in their publications. Also active at Nature Photographer's Network.com, and I support the Nature Conservancy's work around the globe.
