Philosophy and Comments        

From the leopards of Africa to the icebergs of Newfoundland ... From the macaws of the Amazon to the peaks of Switzerland ... my sense of wonder has been nurtured by the natural world. One of my greatest joys is experiencing a wild place while photographing its fauna and flora. The feeling of awe I experience immersed in mountain, birdsong, bushveldt, or cicada choir is as profound a spiritual practice as any meditation. Thus, my photographs are not a travel record, but works of art which reflect a constant striving for, and testament to, the human connection to all things and the circle within which we must participate rather than control. I offer my images to you in the spirit of sharing that awe, as well as the grace of capturing a moment on paper.
