Photographic Areas of Focus

Nature, Wildlife


United States of America


Moving to Big Sky full time in 2010 and being surrounded by such amazing wildlife and natural beauty, my lifetime photography interest became a passion. My main goal with wildlife photography is to observe and catch an animal’s behavior and interactions in situations where they don’t know I am there or they don’t mind my presence. Sometimes this is serendipitous and sometimes it calls for patience - like waiting hours for a grizzly napping on top of a bison carcass to wake up. Currently there are several of my photos hanging in the new expansion of the Bozeman International Airport and four are displayed on the backs of the new Swiftcurrent Chairlift at Big Sky Resort. My work is also shown at the Big Sky Artist Studio Gallery. By pursuing nature photography I feel more of a connection to the natural beauty that surrounds us, and I feel privileged to record and share some of the sights I see.
