My goal is to share my vision of this beautiful world by inspiring and educating people in the art of nature photography.

I spend countless hours in the wild waiting for the perfect convergence of light, mood, and composition that makes the most thrilling image—and I constantly write about these experiences and my artistic philosophy to benefit all who are eager to learn.

Always looking for the sharpest, smartest—and most entertaining—in photography instruction and education, I am pleased to bring you these books and videos to help you perfect your craft and take your creative vision to new heights.
