Photography has not always been a part of my life. Photography has been the vessel that has allowed me to pair my two loves; technology and science. I have always had questions and the ambition to learn. I have been invested in photography for several years now and there are always new things to learn. I find this especially true of wildlife photography. Not only does the equipment or software change, but nature is always throwing curve balls your way with a myriad of species to know and understand. My goal in life is to share with others what Nature shares with me and to highlight why Mother Nature is worth saving.
