2020 Showcase Top 24 Winner
I’m an enthusiastic photography hobbyist loving all things nature. I’ve been shooting consistently for about two years and enjoy shooting wildlife and landscapes as well as still life with a focus on flowers. To date, some of my favorite places to shoot (and hope to return to) are Alaska, Rwanda, Kenya, and the Grand Tetons.
I like to keep busy and work with my hands. Holding a camera and taking pictures kept me centered when I traveled with my rambunctious family. My camera wasn’t fancy, and I likely didn’t operate it well, but I enjoyed slowing down and composing pictures.
In 2017 I traveled to Kenya where nature photography stole my heart.
Mesmerized by the stunning landscapes and exquisite animals, I felt encouraged to learn more about wildlife, conservation, and the art of photography. I’m passionate about my new craft, the camaraderie it’s brought as well as the wonderful teachers and guides I’ve been fortunate to have worked with.
