Why I Take Photographs

As an ever-advancing digital society, most of us interact with screened devices and man-made materials more than we engage with the natural world. 

We too easily forget that we are part of nature, not separate from it, and our actions have profound impacts on our natural resources, our food and water supplies, our weather, and our health. 

I believe that to live sustainably and healthfully, we must rekindle our connection to and appreciation for nature.  I hope my work inspires you to find ways to get outside more and experience the natural world first hand.

A Little About My Journey

After pursuing careers as a cancer biologist and then as a biosafety professional, I decided to honor my love of nature more actively by pursuing a long-standing interest outdoor photography. 

I am a self-taught photographer with an insatiable desire to learn everything I can about my craft and share my images and knowledge with others. 

In late 2019, I launched Outdoor Photography School, an online resource to help photographers create better images and reconnect with nature through articles, videos, and courses focused on photography techniques and outdoor skills. 

My goal is to inspire others to spend more time exploring the outdoors in a safe and respectful way with their cameras - and to have fun while doing it, too.
