I specialize in films and stills for kindred spirits that have an insatiable passion for the wild.  I love getting into the technicals details of why and how equipment works so I can use it without thinking in the field.  I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t doing something outdoors.  I grew up on the Pacific Coast of Central America surrounded by volcanoes, black sand beaches, and great surf!  I started surfing at twelve and migrated to photography, influenced by my best friend’s dad who had a dark room in which he developed glossy surf prints.  

My work has been recognized (see Awards and Recognitions section below) by the Fine Art Photography Awards, the International Photography Awards, Landscape Photography Magazine as well as commented on by various other organizations, including the United Nation's Biodiversity Initiative, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council, the Audubon Society, the American Bald Eagle Foundation, DIY Photography™, Photography Life™, and the Alaska Wilderness League.  My recent photograph of the skin patterns of an Iguana won the top award in the Art Wolfe Photography as Art Competition. I am the founder of @EarthAperture and a frequent contributor to magazines, trade journals, and industry blogs.

My favorite work involves films and stills that can be used for grass root causes that seek to keep things wild.  My contact details are below.

Having read and followed the work of Art Wolfe for several years, I am grateful and honored to have won his Photography as Art Competition with the above composition. The  competition  emphasized Photography  as  Art,  specifically  patterns.  The  contest  is  part  of  a  series that explores the  various  elements of  design which   are essential  to  making  compelling photographic compositions.  It features the intricate, mosaic-like skin of an Iguana in its  breeding colors.  The  diverse  textures and unusual shapes highlight the often overlooked art found in the natural world.
