My goal as a nature photographer is to show you the beauty and magic of the natural world and what is waiting to be explored in our own backyard. My belief is, we need not travel far but instead slow down and be present where we are to see and experience the magic of our natural world. My hope is in viewing my photographs, you will be inspired to be present, explore and learn about the wild place around us and appreciate the beauty in the natural world which surrounds us in our everyday lives.
I almost always travel with my dog Bailey. I never leave home without my camera and hiking shoes. My favorite photographic subjects are what I discover each day as I explore my own backyard and you "see what the camera sees". Most of my images are captured within an hour of my home in Carson City, Nevada.
Other Interests: I volunteer with Least Resistance Training Concepts/Technical Large Animal Rescue. This is a nonprofit organization. Our team in conjunction with Wild Horse Connection and the Nevada Department of Agriculture, rescues injured or at-risk wild horses. Our team is on-call 24/7 to either trap an injured horse, reunite a separated mother and foal, capture a foal whose mother had died or had to be humanely euthanized or relocate horses for public safety.
I also volunteer for American Wild Horse Campaign, also a nonprofit organization, as a photographer/documenter, and a certified fertility control darter. We work as a team, with a cooperative agreement with the Nevada Department of Agriculture to reform the cruel and costly federal wild mustang and burro roundup program and replace it with humane management that keeps wild horses and burros wild, protected and free. AWHC manages the largest, humane fertility control for wild, free-roaming horses in the world.
I am a "boot on the ground" person to do what I can for my beliefs!
