    I received my first camera when I graduated from university many years ago, and photography quickly became my passion.

    I have turned that passion into a photography business. Over the years, I have developed a love of capturing unscripted activities. Whether it is a fundraising event or a sporting event, I am always up for the challenge of capturing the story and the people enjoying the activities.

    That love of action photography combined with nature photography has expanded into bird photography and catching the birds in flight. I also spend a lot of time exploring this big world we live in and use my photos to capture stories of what I see. I am always trying to learn new techniques and improve, so I shoot every week.
