My photography hobby re-started in 2018 after attending my first workshop in Charleston, South Carolina conducted by professional photographers, Hudson Henry and David Archer. With my Nikon D7200, 18-200mm kit lens and a Tamron 150-600mm Zoom lens, this workshop really jump-started what type of photography interested me the most, Landscape, Wildlife and Astro.

My interest in photography began back in 1982 just prior to me embarking on what turned out to be a 2-year sailing adventure where we explored the Indian Ocean, crossed the Atlantic, up to the Carribean, and eventually to Ft Lauderdale, Florida. For this adventure, I purchased a Canon AE1, 35mm film camera, taking many rolls of film, and lots of photos. Then again in 2013 while on a vacation in South Africa, my brother would let me use his Nikon D7000, my first experience with a DSLR camera, photographing wildlife in the Umfolozi Game Reserve. After returning back to the US, is when I was given a Nikon D7000 as a Christmas gift. Because of my racing, photography was not a priority, so I did not really use my camera much, other than at home and family stuff. That was until I stopped racing in 2018. 

Fast forward to today, with several photography workshops, camera gear and road trips, both around the USA and abroad, I have moved into the mirrorless world with my Nikon Z9 and Z8 and an assortment of lenses. The other shift I have made is gravitating to Wildlife, specifically birds, as my favorite genre. Currently, I have recorded, and photograph 463 species and counting.

I am an amateur photographer with a passion, traveling to many birding locations here in the USA, Costa Rica, and most recently, to South Africa where I recorded and photographed 172 species over an eight-week period. There are many places I’d like to explore, and the first will Alaska on a small research-type ship early 2024. I hope you enjoy my photography and stay tuned for more pages of exploration.

My web site is undergoing a makeover, shifting to photography as a primary subject, and away from my decade of motorsports. I apologize in advance if any of the pages are incomplete or missing any photographs as I re-arrange all of my website media.
